Glenn Kaino at Pittsburgh International Airport

Glenn Kaino fabricated "Arch" as a temporary work commissioned for Pittsburgh's 250th birthday celebration in 2008. The Transformer-like sculpture is made of steel and fiberglass and stood twenty feet tall overlooking the river at PNC Park, before it was removed for restoration in 2011. It has since been repaired and relocated to the Pittsburgh International Airport.

Honor Fraser - Los Angeles
By Clayton Campbell
May/June, 2012

Glenn Kaino's recent exhibition at Honor Fraser is something of a wonder. The elaborate project fills the gallery and is set up in various sections, each fascinating in its own right. The challenge for the artist was whether the work would function as a spectacular unified effort, or be received as disparate yet compelling objects bound by critical theory inadvertently obscuring the artist's intentions.

Glenn Kaino Review in LA Times

Charting Another Direction: Glenn Kaino at Honor Fraser
By Holly Myers

"Bring Me the Hands of Piri Reis," the title of
Glenn Kaino's first gallery show in several years,
at Honor Fraser, refers to a 16th century Turkish
cartographer known for having made one of the
earliest extant maps of the Americas. In a series
called "Knowledge Transfer," Kaino makes inkjet
transfer reproductions from Piri Reis' maps but
intervenes before the prints have dried to
smudge and smear the pigment with his hands,
thus obscuring and distorting geographical
delineations Columbus, sought to define the
shape of the then-rapidly expanding world."

"The wands are symbolic representations of power that artists have to create, which is magical. They were developed in collaboration with a master magician named John Gaughan, the maker of tools and best-known magic tricks in the world. I asked if he would be interested in working with me to create a work that speaks to the power of artists to build a fantasy world alternate to ours and he enthusiastically accepted "
