Heather Rowe's art occupies a space at the intersection of sculpture, installation, and architecture and her constructions derive their tension from a refusal to fit neatly into any one category. Rowe's sculptural practice is intimately engaged with the formal language and phenomenological experience of architecture. Interior and exterior space seem to collapse into one another as the raw materials of construction—modular units of drywall, plywood, glass, and metal—are combined with decorative moldings or swatches of carpet or wallpaper. Rowe's solo exhibitions include commissions for the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana and UMMA/University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor, Michigan. She has been featured in numerous group exhibitions including shows at PS1/MoMA, Long Island City, New York; Art in General, New York; White Columns, New York; the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Ohio; and in 2008 her work was featured in the Whitney Biennial.
