Volume Gallery hosts a site-specific architectural installation by Charlie O’Geen and Frank Fantauzzi, opening with a reception on Saturday 27 October 2012. On 27 September O’Geen and Fantauzzi traveled 1,400 kilometers over 14 hours to Chicago upon completion of Hollow at RAW Gallery in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Engaging in a stream of conversation analyzing projects past and future, they arrived at Volume Gallery, immersed themselves in the space, and began to analyze the architecture.

Like any building, 845 West Washington has had many lives; originally built to house automobiles, now galleries and creative practices, the space has hosted several bodies of energy. Through O’Geen and Fantauzzi’s investigation of the site, they encourage the viewer to observe the building’s earliest components while creating a new architectural language. Combined with exhuming the building’s past they will construct new environments utilizing building materials that call into question a prior life and our relationship to the space.
