A typical show by David Neevel might include painting, photography, electronics, sculpture, slides or a chainsaw covered in mirrors. For Propellers, this month’s First Thursday exhibition at the W+K Portland office, David has foregone variety and installed dozens of propellers on motors on wires that make their way through the Wieden+Kennedy building.
What this show lacks in variety it hopes to make up for with 900 solder connections, about a thousand zip ties and three-quarters of a mile of electrical fencing.
According to his artist’s statement, “The propellers represent ideas.”
What’s that supposed to mean, David?
Doors tonight at 6.
