A Video Installation by Lisa Birke
September 11 – October 17th
Opening Reception: Friday September 11th 8PM
Twelve Calendar Girls, exemplifying different character types, enter landscapes representing the months of the year. Initially, all of the Girls stand motionless facing the viewer until a conductor’s baton is heard taping, counting in the orchestration. The work is a humorous exploration of the societal expectations of woman as aesthetic symbol and spectacle who is intrinsically at home in nature.
