Bitterman further explores the idea of scale and the role it plays in the creation of meaning in “Lot 18,” an exhibit at the Subterranean Gallery, a space operated in a basement apartment inhabited by recent Kansas City Art Institute graduate Ayla Rexroth. Like “Point of Interest,” “Lot 18” is part of the artist’s “Home(Land) Art” series, inspired by Land Art, an art movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s in which artists created monumental installations in remote locations, often incorporating elements of the landscape such as dirt and rocks.
