Malleable Pursuits of Protection
October 5-October 30
Sarah Nance’s shrouds for landscapes and Shelley Socolofsky’s installation of repurposed materials for reimagined social narratives.
This installation is a multi-sensorial, non-hierarchical project which includes two large scale handwoven tapestries, a selection of photographs and prints, and a sonic projection. An examination into the power of human agency, this project is a collaboration between interdisciplinary artists Shelley Socolofsky and Sarah Nace. The tapestries displayed draw from colonial narratives which are rewritten, through weaving, and through the use of loaded materials, as a strategy to subvert and flatten hierarchies.
