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.
