BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works: Sarah and Joseph Belknap

For their exhibition at the MCA, Chicago-based artists Sarah Belknap (b. 1983) and Joseph Belknap (b. 1979) present a substantial group of new works that reflect on how we think about our place in the cosmos. These projects include an array of tactile sculptures that the artists describe as “moon skins”; a twenty-four-foot, site-specific installation of two massive craters placed side by side; and a new multichannel video based on five satellite feeds of the sun. The Belknaps have worked together since 2008, the year they were married. Their interdisciplinary practice draws from a range of sources including the history of science, personal experiences, and notions of space in popular imagination.
