Considering portals evokes consciousness of an implied barrier, typically establishing a distinction between inside and out of doors, laden with connotations like recognized/unknown or sacred/profane. Heinz Frank and Vedran Kopljar’s works reveal numerous relationships between inside and out of doors, difficult these distinctions.

Portals have existed within the pure world, concentrated the place magnetic power converges—river banks, waterfalls, caves, timber, and mountain summits. Hunter Longe’s sculptures, resembling historic formations with embedded lights, transport us to unimaginably distant pasts.
