February 28 – March 28, 2013
Reception 5-7 pm / Thursday Feb 28
3/3/3/13 – three video presentations for three weeks in March – was conceived specifically as an all-video exhibition. While the viewer will likely find commonality in the works’ approaches and themes, the videos are distinct, occupying very different sensory and emotional spaces. With one taking a prolonged look at the wall of a building with its crepuscular inhabitants glimpsed through windows (Seitenflügel), another concerning the grim vitality of existential struggle (Where is the Black Beast?), and the third depicting a beautiful and menacing polar seascape (Kivanrepu), perhaps these three works are entirely consonant with the indecisively damp and mercurial nature of late winter.

Of Paper is comprised of two related exhibitions focusing on the work of artists Leo Morrissey (Winston-Salem, NC) and Delio Gennai (Pisa, IT), some of it on, but most of it OF paper. Paper, for these artists, is utilized as substance and structure to carry both form and meaning. The works of both artists imply that much of the development of culture as we understand it has relied on the use of paper.
