Opening reception for Adam Crosson: if at all

if at all
Adam Crosson
Carroll Gallery
opening reception: Thursday, Jan. 17, 5:30 - 7:30 pm, with a walkthrough by the artist at 6:00 pm

exhibition dates: Jan. 15 - Feb. 7, 2019

artist's statement:

The exhibition, if at all, is an installation including sculpture, photography, and video projection looking at aspects of place and memory. Much of the work references built structures that are in varying states of both dormancy and latency. These states frame the present by looking forward and backward in time. I search urban and rural conditions for these structures and in doing so collapse properties of both in the space of the gallery. My approach to installation is influenced by the cinematic experience as one that focuses visual and auditory stimuli within a mediated environment. I employ some of these cinematic conventions from a desire to obfuscate a sense of time and locale, opening upon the fictive and the potential unfolding of a narrative structure.
