Chantal Striepe: Here Somewhere There
February 19, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - February 23, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Senior Chantal Striepe’s (BHA ’18) solo exhibition, “Here Somewhere There,” is an installation work that displays a set of artistic pieces, which derive from a larger series of art installation works. This larger series explores the connection between the artist’s mind and body through the documentation of movement. In particular, this Ellis Gallery exhibition presents a singular representation of the boundaries of the human mind and body with regards to being present, aware, and mindful through the use and unspoken restrictions of materiality and other formal components of the installation works. The artist aims to present a tangible representation of the human, the artist’s, mind and body while in a state of mindfulness and awareness. Careful consideration is made in terms of the use of line, form, scale, magnitude, lighting, and space.
“Here Somewhere There” is a part of a collection of installation works that form Striepe’s ongoing senior BXA Capstone, “Untangling.” In this BXA Capstone, she attempts to capture the contingent quality, or subject to chance nature, of the human gesture in order to speak to the correlation between the mind and body by way of emphasizing the coexistence of scale and magnitude in relation to presence and absence.
