Betwixt & Between

November 11th, 2010 – January 22nd, 2011
An opening reception will be held November 11, 2010, 6 pm-8 pm.

Betwixt & Between is a group exhibition of contemporary short videos that inject the ordinary domestic landscape with existential content and psychological slippages. Informed by the visual and conceptual strategies of the Surrealists, and echoing their simple, direct methods for constructing dream-like experiences, the artists in Betwixt & Between create works that reveal the authority, alienation, and desire embedded in everyday objects and occurrences.

Exploring the flexibility and contradictory nature of the medium, the artists construct non-narrative videos that recall the emotional freedom of childhood; the curiosity of wonderment and the intrigue of the forbidden underscore many of the works exhibited. Mundane settings and items are repurposed in unexpected ways to glimpse into worlds uncertain and fantastic. Within these haunted realms, time is stretched, condensed, and fractured to unsettling effect.
