(Currents 826) | The Quality of Being Fleeting
The work of video artists Gillian Brown & Cherie Sampson shares preoccupation with the in-between: glimpses of the subtle junctions between the substantial and the fleeting, form and dissolution, stillness and movement, void and quickening. Within these subtle junctions, the artists in their individual practices each explore suspension of duality and transience, expressed through various shared philosophical underpinnings, visual language and approaches to soundscape. Prevalent lexicons in their work include images that slowly dissolve, one into the other, creating transformations in disparate time, scale, and place: one season quietly slips into another; city lights become the cosmos; figures simply slide from view or merge with the landscape. Shifting perception and the evanescence of existence itself is intrinsic to both artists’ intermedia work.
