"Swimming Series: A Narrative - Photographs by Alex Emmons"
2000-05-04 until 2000-05-27
USA United States of America
In swimming series, artist Alex Emmons creates a cinematic environment with an
installation of fifty small illuminated lightboxes. Dark backgrounds create a
nebulous abyss in which several figures appear and reappear, interacting
indirectly, in gestures that pull us into moments of joy, uncertainty, hope,
and trust. The artist asks us to consider how we know what we know, and to
consider a possible world in which all we have is our bodies and the other
people around us.
Reception with the artist on First Thursday, May 4, 6 to 9 pm.
Thursday through Saturday, 12pm to 5pm, or by appointment.
