BETWEEN BEAUTY AND DECAY
ARTSPACE NEW HAVEN 2017-2018
At which point in the life cycle does beauty
mutate to decay? The imbricated landscape of
contemporary culture has created a porous
definition of war, conflict, and manifestations of
violence. Between Beauty and Decay is an
examination of humanity in the age of conflict.
Using visual media to redress what happens
when humanity is at odds with the other with
the natural world, and at the micro level, when
humanity is diametrically opposed to the self.
Utilizing single channel video and installation,
this exhibition seeks to confront the viewer with
unflinching beauty and terror.
