Martha Jackson Jarvis: Ancestors' Bones

Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 12:00pm to 5:00pm

Mechanical Hall, Gallery Mechanical Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19711, USA

Martha Jackson Jarvis: Ancestors' Bones explores relationships and contingencies linking histories and spirits captured in a vintage photographic album and in the physical materiality of nature. Conceptualized as an environment of immersion that blurs boundaries between sequential and spatial narratives,her installation of drawings,digitally enhanced imagery and sculpture,literally and figuratively unearths resonant histories from the photographic record,dislodging the visual fixity of the socio-historic image,and creatively reimagining their stories within the natural world.
