Diane Williams' INcongruence involves a participatory art piece and an installation that will confront viewers, turning them into active participants. The installation involves 8 large modules made out of wire, recycled and manipulated fiber such as: yarn, thread, fabric, and shredded paintings, interwoven together and creating an immersive structure that fills Gallery 825's largest front space. These materials have personal history, discarded or purchased from the artist's neighborhood Thrift Shop in Glassell Park and the Fabric District in Downtown Los Angeles called Santee Alley, frequented by many lower and middle income immigrant families. Williams intertwined these elements into modular weavings, reminiscent of protest signs and roadside memorials that will operate as obstructions, confinement and disruptions. The polychromatic modules are an amalgamation of diverse textures and components. A reminder that America is clearly divided as a nation, but we have more in common than we are often led to believe. Diversity is what makes this country great.
