Jacqueline Surdell

Urban Contours

June 2018

Jacqueline Surdell’s interdisciplinary practice draws from an ethos of rigorous discipline and directed stamina that defined her collegiate athletic career. Surdell integrated rope into her practice to tediously fabricate large-scale, woven and knotted sculptures that echo the endurance of athletics. For Stumble Chicago, she maps the rope’s allusions to the body and labor onto the public sphere. By making "drawings" in an abandoned lot with bright, blue rope, Surdell restructures space, volume and light as it relates to the architectural forms that support the CTA.
