Exhibition Opening: The Arc | Illumination, Ritual, and Reflection
Opening Reception: Friday, April 5th: 5 PM
The Arc is a multi-media presentation that bridges black and white polaroid work with experimental films by artist Jen Ervin (b. 1971), a Redux Studio Artist alumna (2011-2014). Ervin’s series began during her residency at Redux in May of 2012 and continued for a period of six years, ending recently in 2018. The series ritualizes the waxing and waning of summer and the wild desire to remain in its embrace. The works selected are presented as a rhythmic exploration of place—measured in seasons and sequenced repetition— during her family’s retreats to their historic cabin set along the Little Pee Dee River in South Carolina. Visually rich in sensory memory, history and mysticism, Ervin’s work alludes to a narrative with no beginning, middle or end, yet offers continuum. It will be installed in an asymmetrical grid to reflect the poetic nature of the work. The films offer an extension of experience to the viewer, drawing in on the intangible, a sense of mythical timelessness in regard to place.
Illumination, Ritual, Reflection, curated by Jen Ervin, is an exhibition that brings to focus nine contemporary photographers creating provocative work that continues a historical dialogue regarding creativity and how it can elucidate the relationship between the self and the ever-shifting landscape (societal, ecological, and psychic).
