new work by Matthew Keller and Charlene Liska
November 7th – 29th
Echoes operate across time as well as space, manifesting as fractured versions of the original. A broken connection is bridged, a communication seeming to come at once from someone we know and from a complete stranger, and we discover something intimate about ourselves the way another person would, meeting us for the first time, true and false impressions treaded together, indissoluble.
Echo is Liska’s response to a very old house with a very complex history.
For Keller, Echo is an exploration of home and memory, the interplay or emotions – discontent, ambivalence, regret, nostalgia – iterated in verbal and visual media. Old familiar objects are broken down and reassembled in ways that can double back on the source, both distorting and enriching. Memory is at once corrupted and purified. Nothing is static.
