Sept. 11-Oct. 16, 2015
featuring the work of Michelle Jaffé and Stevie Morrison
“Home and Field” offers two significant multi-media installations exploring ancestry, community, home, and the notion of the other. New Yorker Michelle Jaffé displays “Wappen Field,” a group of futuristic silver helmets suspended from the ceiling. When stepping into the head gear, viewers find that each helmet is also a haunting sound installation. Nascent artist Stevie Morrison cleverly uses Google Maps to recreate 900 blocks in Lexington, Kentucky, allowing gallery visitors to take an extraordinary walk around town with an ordinary in-gallery video camera.
