31Grand is proud to present "The Black Death" by Jason Clay Lewis. Inspired
plague epidemic of the 1300s as well as current biological threats, Jason
imagines what our existence would look like if we were still living under
the fear of a rapidly spreading plague. This multimedia exhibition combines
medieval tale, contemporary culture criticism, and dark humor.
The story is told through a series of sculpture, photography, video, and
drawings. The icons of Jason's narrative include a life-size sculpture of a
knight in armor on a battle horse, his holographic-generated sculpture "Key
of Light", "Death's Door", a highly detailed 9’ x 7' door adorned with
hand-tooled leather depicting nearly a thousand unique skeleton knights.
