Beyond the Veil is a body of work that is a collaboration between
Seattle-based artist Erin Elyse Burns and Sweden-based artist Samantha
Albert. The exhibition offers a series of photographic performances,
sculpture, and video. The work explores obscured bodily gestures
through the use of vivid color, seductive shape, and ephemeral form.
Immateriality and camouflage within the immense and varied landscapes
of Bohuslän evolve into a mythology of inexplicable moments that both
reveal and conceal. To exist beyond the veil conjures a mysterious and
hidden state of knowing and the unknown.
