Beyond the veil 19 – 21 maj

posted in: Utställningar | 0


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.
