"And Deer and Trees and Things: Videos by Cat Clifford"
2006-06-20 until 2006-08-20
Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington
USA United States of America
This exhibition, And Deer and Trees and Things: Videos by Cat Clifford, continues the Henry’s inventive use of interstitial spaces for exhibition. In her three short videos, Clifford observes, records, and inhabits rural Western landscapes. The exhibition runs through August 20, 2006. The Henry Art Gallery engages diverse audiences in the powerful experience of artistic invention and serves as a catalyst for the creation of new work that inspires and challenges. Exhibitions, collections, and public programs stimulate research and teaching at the University of Washington, provide a creative wellspring for artists, and reveal a record of modern artistic inquiry from the advent of photography in the mid-19th century to the multidisciplinary art and design of the 21st.
Clifford created two works during an artist's
residency in Banner, Wyoming where the solace and slow pace fostered an
intuitive connection to the wildlife in this isolated region. The third video
depicts the artist making a simple and profound gesture of refuge in the
dramatic setting of a burnt forest in the North Cascades.
