    Exhibition: EAF12: 2012 Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition

    Roll Gates, 2012


    120” x 150” x 150”

    Roll Gates consists of four readymade, steel roll-gates, unmodified except for their relationship to each other.  Assembled not as substitute for a door, but as a functionless representation of a door, which can only offer an ambiguous depiction of a gateway. Inspired from a patchwork of sources, from the Kabba at Mecca, to the Ishtar gate in ancient Babylon, and to contemporary urban industrial architecture, Harlan creates an uncanny experience, stunting viewers as they attempt to enter a gateless gate.
