A droning camera surveys sections of landscape formations, finding points of depth on the surface of the image. A meteorite named Akaba, which fell near Ma’an, Jordan in 1949, reveals the story. There, before opens with an anecdote inspired by the proto-science fiction narrative, “Awaj bin Anfaq” written by the 13th century thinker Zakariya Al-Qazwini, about a being that came to earth from a distant planet. The film unfolds into a contemplative sequence of associations and subjunctive fragments on climate, natural resources, and geologic time in connection with the Anthropocene age of human impact.

The Appearance of Clarity: Works in Black and White

Exhibition:
The Appearance of Clarity: Works in Black and White

Date:
June 20-August 31, 2014

Featured artists:
Louis Cameron
Sharan Elran
Marietta Hoferer
Jenny Holzer
Sarah Horne
Chelsea Martin
Lynn Newcomb
Andreas Rentsch (SBU Art 2013 M.F.A.)
Suzy Spence
Nan Tull

Place:
Helen Day Art Center
90 Pond Street
Stowe, VT 05672

This show was curated by Amy Rahn (PhD candidate in Art History at SBU)

This exhibition explores the subtle, double, and hidden meanings the apparent clarity of black and white might obscure. The show includes, among its ten contributors, an artist who makes paintings from redacted government documents, a sculptor who forges metal into unreadable script, and a painter who rendered a portrait in the form of a novel. With its visual and conceptual twists and turns, the exhibition invites viewers to encounter these works in all their lucid complexity.
