Anything Can Be a Dragon, Anything Can Be A Snake
NEIU Gallery Jan 10 through Feb 4, 2022
Two person show with Kristin McWarther
Anything Can Be A Dragon, Anything Can Be A Snake deals with the perception of consciousness, the potential for connection, and the inevitability of distortion. We revere the dynamic forces behind our experience of wind, sound, and light — and struggle with the illusion of control we seek as human beings. This emerges as a celebratory swell of energy sweeping us in a common direction. This two-person show is the first time Kristin Abhalter Smith and Kristin McWharter have worked together. As we explore the emergent possibilities of this collaboration we conjure the phenomena of ignition, provocation, synchronization, and the powerful forces that cause us to move together.
