Featured Solo Artist: Bojana Ginn
Stories of Fiber and Light. 2016. Bojana Ginn
Join us Oct. 7th from 7-10PM for the opening of Atlanta-based artist and scientist Bojana Ginn new exhibition, "Even Mountains Are Only Suspended On Strings." This immersive indoor/outdoor installation will be visible up and down the Memorial Drive corridor, bringing dynamic light and energy to the whole neighborhood and serving as a beacon for community connections and contemplation.
Inside the gallery, lines of thin wool fibers will appear suspended in space as projections dart on and among them. On the outside of the building, a massive projection broadcasts footage of Ginn manipulating lines in a 3D modeling program, a play of line and light that both evokes intuitive play and the precision of gene splicing.
Ginn’s work asks: is harmony between ourselves, the natural world, and new technologies possible? How can this interrelation point towards a future marked by environmental healing and a more loving consciousness?
"Mountains" was created in part by the women of the Mercy Care art therapy class led by artist and activist, Melly Wirtes. To find out what they do and how to support them, please visit: https://www.mercyatlanta.org/
**Exhibition runs through Oct. 21st**
