Opening Reception, Thursday, May 4, 6-9 pm
Third Thursday Reception, May 18, 6-9 pm
Eric Hess is taking the meaning of M’aidez as the literal translation of ‘help me’ tying it in with traditional European Mayday when humans salute the earth.
Humans dancing around a maypole adorned in flower crowns might not have the impact that is needed now that our planet seems to be dying. Hess will explore through photography, video and objects how people celebrate and the consequences of human actions and demonstrate how nature usually wins in the end.
Ian Babylon has prepared a collection of works where both mortal and divine are asking for help, assistance, intercession, intervention.
Using classical & contemporary visual elements Babylon recomposes collaged works into newly cast surrealist mythologies familiar yet novel for today and tomorrow to come.
