While many of the exhibitions at Aggregate Space (801 Grand Ave., Oakland) explicitly complicate notions of place, nearly all of the shows at the West Oakland gallery at least implicitly touch on the topic. Because Aggregate is a space that specializes in video and large-scale installation, many of its shows immerse the viewer and easily lend themselves to questioning geographic situations — each time in an impressively novel way. AlterLandEscape, the gallery’s current show, is no exception. It features a collection of sculpture, video, and multi-channel installation works that “remap the height and depth of the gallery’s physical landscape,” as the curatorial statement reads. “Participants will exist somewhere amongst the inner and outer boundaries of these familiar yet unknown hybrid micro-environments.” Among the artists are Centa Schumacher, a photographer who creates lenses embedded with crystals to manipulate light to ethereal effect; John Tronsor, who often works strategically with light and shadows to form illusory environments; and May Wilson, whose soft, wobbly sculptures are somehow both imposing and endearing. Although Aggregate is normally only open on Saturdays, it will be hosting a First Friday reception for the show on September 4 from 5–8 p.m.
