Mariani Gallery, Guggenheim Hall
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.
