Cedar Lorca Nordbye's "To Frame - To Construct - To Occupy” at Crosstown Arts

This past weekend at Crosstown Arts, artist and U of M professor Cedar Lorca Nordbye began the install for his upcoming show, “To Frame - To Construct - To Occupy," with two materials: more than a ton of fresh lumber and four big, empty walls. "There is a sense of wonder,” Nordbye says, “to coming into a room and seeing this much wood...I thought, ‘When am I ever going to have piles of lumber and a huge empty room again?”
Nordbye is no stranger to wood-centric installation (past works include cluttered and colorful “Everything Connects to Everything” as well as a sparse and dark related work, “Everything Connects to Emmett”), but “To Frame” is the artist’s most ambitious installation to date.
