Now Showing

Enlinked, Enlaced, Enamored — Ajean Ryan & Katie Caron

September 15 — October 15, 2016, Mariani Gallery

Artist Reception: Thursday, September 15 from 4 – 6pm

Lebenswelt is a German word for the phenomenological belief that the world is immediately or directly experienced in the subjectivity of everyday life. This “lifeworld” can be seen as a theater of objects situated within space and time. In Katie Caron’s work, she creates fantastical installations to immerse viewers in a carefully constructed landscape using film and theatrical effects. Ajean Ryan creates mythological installations composed of transformed detritus. The exhibition will consist of multi-media works, sculptures, installation and wall pieces. The works will be woven together in the space and curated thoughtfully by both artists.
