Gallery Walk and Reception for "Encounters: Courtney Egan"
Come celebrate the opening of a new exhibition, "Encounters: Courtney Egan" with a gallery walk and reception at 2 p.m. on opening day.
New Orleans video artist Courtney Egan creates projection-based sculptural installations that meld nature with technology, delivering an experience that is both pleasing and disconcerting. The ethereal projections – converging on walls, floors and sculptural elements – are inspired by the growing frequency of human exposure to nature via computers or television. Egan creates stunning yet “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” which envelop the viewer in a conversation between the memory of the natural world and a new experience with a plant or flower. She explains the fundamental irony of the experience, stating, “We get closer and farther away from the natural world simultaneously when we experience it through a technological lens.” Organized by HMA.
