The Joy of Limitations: Lisa Kokin Talks About Her Process
March 30th, 2-4pm
Video’s by Deborah Oropallo, with soundtrack by Andy Rappaport, and paintings by Tamera Avery examine concerns that are often at the heart of public and national debate, fueling, possibly very reasonable, social anxiety and insecurity.
Using parallel processes, Avery and Oropallo cull content from the vast resources of the internet, cutting, translating and assembling their works in potent examinations of climate change, gun control, immigration, xenophobia and other issues with somewhat painful prognostications for the future. The visually intriguing play between them engages on multiple levels, on the one hand concrete and monumental and on the other, contemplative and ephemeral, and in combination visceral and mesmerizing.
