Joëlle Morosoli, Trame funestre, 2016

Vernissage: Thursday, January 5th at 6 pm
Exhibition: January 6 to 28, 2017

Joëlle Morosoli will fill the gallery with large mechanical installations that create a space that is both intractable and menacing. Playing upon the theme of prisoners and jailers, the artist creates an allegory of the secret world of our weaknesses and taboos. Visitors will be invited to enter into this space and experience the feelings it provokes.

Sarah Stevenson, Jambon, 2016

Vernissage: Thursday, March 2 at 6 pm
Exhibition: March 3 to 25, 2017
Artist’s Talk: Thursday, March 9 at 7 pm

Several light, insubstantial sculptures will be suspended from the ceiling and will appear to float within the space of the gallery, pivoting in reaction to the movements of the visitors. The surface of each shape will be covered by a network of fine lines made up of threads which form a fragile cage, suggesting transitory or imaginary dwellings and oneiric spaces. The sculptures will be accompanied by drawings of the same forms.

The exhibition travels to the Colby Curtis Museum, July 2016.  Catalogue available.
