La Longue Durée: A Long Moment

La Longue Durée: A Long Moment

La Longue Durée: A Long Moment, Pinnacle Gallery, Savannah College of Art and Design, January – March 2003


What is living but “a long moment”, inner selves protected by flimsy layers, often pierced, often transparent, yet enduring and even though scarred and marked by time, still beautiful. Beneath the coverings are layers, truths mostly hidden, yet revealed now and then, epiphanies coming in glimmers of light, only to fade and be replaced with new illuminations before all is dark.

This exhibit exists in a semi-darkened room. House bulbs hang within the floor-to-ceiling silk organza cocoon-like enclosures that are rust and tea stained and semi-transparent. Bulbs fade on-and-off at different intervals, permitting glimpses of time before fading. The exhibit continues an ongoing theme of subtly revealing the hidden, then paradoxically reversing that perception.
