As Our Story Opens...
June 23 - July 23, 2016
|Opening Reception June 24, 5-7 pm
Judith Brotman’s work is invested in linguistics. Her pieces function as many things at once, taking the forms of installations, artist books, lists, sculptures, and audio. She uses simple materials—thread, self-hardening clay, wires and pins, found book pages, and tape—to conceptually manage irreconcilable opposites. For this exhibition, Brotman will be presenting a hand-stitched and altered version of Homer's epic The Odyssey, a taxonomy of objects entitled Slow Time, and a sound piece called As the Story Opens... in which she reads the opening to our story over and over again.
