Reception 11.1, Thursday, 6 – 8, Gallery Talk, 6:30, Carlson Auditorium
Closed 11/20 – 11/24 for Thanksgiving
Photo-etchings of domestic animals and human bodies and wild beasts—sometimes alone and sometimes together, and sometimes merged into one—are presented inside large paper pods hanging from the ceiling. The viewer navigates around and inside these pods, experiencing each of these worlds as a different kind of life, species distinct and often separate and isolated from each other. And yet—in this exhibition—they sometimes merge together by a shared life force and a longing for connection to the other. The work in this exhibition explores the passion, the agony, the peace, the universality, and the individuality of longing and being longed for.
