Uncharted Waters: REVERSE 2013
April 12 – May 12, 2013
Opening Reception: April 12, 2013
Uncharted Waters: REVERSE 2013 is the inaugural exhibition of work by members of the REVERSE Artist Community, a select group of artists who feature regularly in its exhibitions and programming. Artists participating in Uncharted Waters are: CHi KA, Melissa F. Clarke, Brandon Friend & Jason Douglas Griffin, Daria Irincheeva, Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels and Aleksey Yudzon.
Uncharted Waters: REVERSE 2013 features work in a variety of media, including installations by Melissa F. Clarke, Daria Irincheeva, and Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels, two-dimensional works on paper by Alex Yuzdon and collaborative duo Brandon Friend and Jason Douglas Griffin, and video projection by Chi KA. While formally different, these works demonstrate a shared interest in investigating unfamiliar topographies and the creative challenges of visualizing places that have yet to be discovered. Through the appropriation of old maps and travel images or the translation of cartographic postulations into three-dimensional spaces, the works presented in Uncharted Waters: REVERSE 2013 explore novel ways of traversing the boundaries of our everyday environments.
