Opens Wednesday 09 May 6pm–8pm
Two burnt out cigarettes twist inward toward a bold, austere lighter in ‘The Disciples.’ A contemporary vanitas installation. It explores the transient nature of art and existence through its broken, blinking light box images of these three memento mori objects.The flashing of the fluorescent tubes takes the ‘photograph’ from a static object and gives it life. It is analogous to a fly erratically buzzing around on the floor. It’s struggling, dying. The distinct sound of the fluorescent starter blinking, trying in vain to light the gas inside the tube.
