Oxbow   Delirious Dreaming Pugilist and Other Stories Klara Glosova

Closing Reception: Saturday, July 14, 6 – 9pm

“The cornerstone of this project is a small print of a brick wrapped in brown butcher paper and named “Pugilist”. In fact, picture two bricks. The two main characters-the stars of the show-are a pair of bricks, one for each hand. They are not particularly stunning, monumental or impressive in their presence, nevertheless their weight is considerable – they can be used as a support or to hold things down, to break through or to build with. With these qualities in mind I want to build a new narrative for what it means to be a woman fighter.” -Klara Glosova

Prairie Underground These Days-1999-Untill-Forever, Doug Newman

“I arrived in Seattle in 1999 and started taking pictures right away of my friends, my lover Jason, my community. Now looking back, these informal moments marked my life. So informal then, visual history locked in time and place now. Some of us grew up, some of us moved in, some gone. 15 years of C-Print color photographs will be pulled to build this memory of ‘These Days-1999-Untill-Forever'”. – Doug(las) P. Newman

Oxbow  presents I am the Shadow of the Image of my person. Through a large-scale interactive sound and video installation, artist-composers James Borchers and Jeremy Jolley explore questions about identity and representation in the age of advanced technology.  Infrared sensors, multichannel speakers, and software generate an interactive experience featuring video projections of performing musicians from the Seattle Modern Orchestra. As visitors move through the space, the images and sounds are altered.  Visitors can enter a small dodechahedron-shaped room to immerse themselves in an audio-video collage of those same players. There will also be a live concert with the musicians, in dialog with the installation. Through its presentation of altering human forms playing their instruments, the piece becomes part performance and part digital play, invoking both dialogic and meditative experience, and calling into question what we know to be real.

Opening Reception May 4, 7pm. Open during Art Attack May 12, 6-9pm. Performance by Seattle Modern Orchestra May 26, 7pm.
