Dispose and Depose (of)
January 12 - March 18, 2018
Lewis Bear Family Gallery and Green Hut Gallery
Depose and Dispose (of) is an exhibition of work by Katrina Andry that invites the viewer to engage in collective empathy and understand the tangible and societal consequences of loss through systemic brutality and its historical and contemporary implications. The exhibition consists of two print series: the first is an anthropomorphic series that explores the hybridities of humans and animals and the correlations between language and image; the partner series is titled The Promise of the Rainbow Never Came in which Andry crafts a slave mythology connected to the imagery of the eel and rooted in the brutalities of the Middle Passage and the dynamics of water. In addition to the print series, there will be an installation work and Andry’s wood printing plates.
