Chris Sollars' art involves the reclamation and subversion of public space through interventions and performance. His work can be experienced in two ways -- through the witnessing of, or participation in, a performative event, or later viewing the documentation of the event in a gallery context via installations that combine photography, video and sculpture. Sollars' process is physical and conceptual as he juxtaposes dissimilar elements to create unexpected forms that are often comedic. Free.
