Artist-In-Residence: Chelsea Couch Objects for Which There I

Tue Feb 12 - 2:00am to Sat Feb 23 - 9:00am

Pulling from the frenetic lamentations of Blue Nights (Joan Didion) and Bluets (Maggie Nelson), Objects for Which There Is No Satisfactory Resolution resolves to explore the intersections of love, loss, grief, trauma, and reconciliation as they are mapped by and inscribed on our bodies. Engaging our community, Couch creates image-based documents of the ways our bodies house and express visceral recollections. These images are used to construct a roadmap of our collective and individual embodied experiences, emblazoned in shades of blue as cyanotypes on fabric which serve as the skin for a space to house these memories.
