Art:21 - Oliver Herring

art:21

2005

Among Oliver Herring's earliest works were his woven sculptures and performance pieces in which he knitted Mylar, a transparent and reflective material, into human figures, clothing and furniture. Since 1998, Herring has created stop-motion videos, photo-collaged sculptures, and impromtu participatory performances with “off-the-street” strangers, embracing chance and chance encounters in his work.

Oliver Herring is featured in the Season 3 episode “Play” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
