Dill, part of the Light and Space movement, has been crafting light and earthymaterials like concrete, glass, sand, and metal into luminous sculptures, wall pieces, and installations since the 1970s. This exhibition contains two site specific installations unique to the San Francisco presentation. In the atrium of the Minnesota Street Project, one encounters an amazing presence of light as Dill’s Light Sentences adorn each of the nine pillars that span the whole space. Light Sentences will lead to the second installation on the ground level in Gallery Space 106. Amid the open darkness, one encounters mountains of sand, with a multitude of colorful long streaks of light. This marks the first solo exhibition in San Francisco for Dill since the mid 1980s.
