Minneapolis - Franklin Art Works invites you to an artists' talk with the St. Paul collaborative tectonic industries on Saturday, February 23 at 2pm.

tectonic industries: the desire to stay versus the inevitability of change
In their largest project to date, tectonic industries (comprised of Helen Stringfellow and Lars Jerlach), in collaboration with cinematographer Evan Drolet Cook, have premiered a 16-monitor video installation that deconstructs Alfred Hitchcock's famed film The Birds.
The desire to stay versus the inevitability of change explores the artifice inherent within the creation of modern myths in popular culture. By referencing a universally regarded film, tectonic industries explores the notion of constructed realities and artificial dialogue.
tectonic industries have been featured in exhibitions at Kansas City Artists Coalition, Rochester Art Center, ONEZERO Projects (Edinburgh), Urban Arts Institute for Contemporary Art (Grand Rapids), Legion Arts (Cedar Rapids), The LAB (San Francisco), The Contemporary Art Institute (Detroit), SOO Visual Arts Center, and a previous Project Space exhibition at Franklin Art Works in 2005.
the desire to stay versus the inevitability of change is curated by Franklin Art Works' Director Tim Peterson.
