Eric Overton: MonumentCurrent
PROJECTS GALLERY: JAN 19 – MAR 17 | 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: JAN 26 | 7 – 9 PM
The battle for wilderness is often portrayed as a land grab, a fight over barbed wire and resource allocation of locations we can see from space. And while a map is helpful when you’re carving things up, it is like offering coordinates to your heart-getting there does not explain what happens there.
The photographs in Monument mark the entry into that mystery. In the accompanying work-in-progress film, these stills transform into moving images, into a portrait of our physical experience in nature-a profound and political statement of what’s at stake, regardless of which side of the fence one shouts from.
Screenings of the work-in-progress film is scheduled fo the Opening Reception on January 26, 2018.
Additional screenings during Gallery Stroll February 16 and March 16, 2018.
