September 4 - October 31
Reception: September 4th, 2009, 6-9PM

Colossus by Nekisha Durrett

Colossus is a full scale installation by Nekisha Durrett inspired by a poem of the same name by David C. Ward. The poem and the installation visualize a land deforested by Colossus, a metaphoric representation of industry and civilization.

Multiplying the Body: Gender Performance Remembered and Reconstructed by Susan Serafin

Landscape, ethnography, and the body are recurring themes in Susan Serafin's work. Serafin delves into concepts of gender expression and performance in her latest installation; Multiplying the Body.

Questioning systems of cultural memory and Virtual Reality's residual effect on the collective conscious and identity, the work in Multiplying the Body represents the idea of the body as a remembered experience. Serafin seeks to capture the unacknowledged moments in our lives when we question what we know and experience an altered perception in between the cracks of our waking lives.
