Opening Reception, Friday, June 3, 7:00 pm
Artists' talks, Saturday June 4, 1:00pm
Through an intelligent arrangement of sculpture, photography and text, this collaborative installation by Seema Goel and Lee Henderson explores the complex relationships between humanity, mortality, animals, and the apparatus. The exhibition calls into question the nature of how we connect to the creatures around us and the roles we thrust upon them. Using oblique narratives, layered imagery, and objects both found and constructed, Goel and Henderson weave the viewer into a space that hovers between contemplation and visceral affect.
