Treading on Thin Ice

Jia-Jen Lin: Treading on Thin Ice

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 22 | 7-9pm

Treading on Thin Ice presents a post-landscape theme that contemplates human conditions under progressive catastrophes resulting from social issues and climate change. By employing the concept of landscape as traces of human history, a battleground, and an extension of the human body, the artist presents a post-landscape where nature, human activities, and materiality intersect. By utilizing body imagery as a receiver and reflector, they explore the possibilities of using our physical bodies as vehicles for reconstructing the events and environment to which we have directly or indirectly been exposed. This project integrates sculptures, video projections, and sound elements into a large, site-specific installation.

Drift

R. Eric McMaster: Drift

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 22 | 7-9pm

“Drift serves to highlight the poetics of separation and loss, the beauty of the inevitable, and the awe of nature in all of its complexity.” — R. Eric McMaster

Drift is a two-channel video installation featuring two musicians playing an original, reactive composition as they are set adrift in the ocean on separate, custom-built rafts. As the musicians physically drift away from one another, their ability to hear each other diminishes causing the duet to slowly fall apart.

The Sea was walking the earth with a heavy heel

Group Exhibition: The Sea was walking the earth with a heavy heel

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 22 | 7-9pm

Guest curated by Ombretta Agró Andruff, ARTSail Residency and Research Initiative, featuring Ursula Biemann, Atul Bhalla, Tania Candiani, Shezad Dawood, and Miguel Sbastida.

The title of this screening program is borrowed from the seminal 1937 novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neil Houston, describing the havoc brought to Central and South Florida by the September 1926 hurricane.  It serves as a bridge connecting us to the present day, here in South Florida, where the consequences of sea-level rise, increased hurricane intensity and overall temperature are particularly relevant.

Water, in all its beauty, might and potential menace, is what connects the five videos presented in this exhibition.
