VINCENNES, Ind. – An exhibition featuring the photographic works of
Leah Gose and Adrian Little will open Nov. 5 at Vincennes University’s
Shircliff Gallery of Art.
The exhibit will include dreamlike imagery and text-based projects
from both artists. The exhibition will run through Dec. 6. An artist
talk and reception will take place with Gose/Little on Nov. 14 from 11
a.m.-12 noon (EST) at the gallery located in Room A103 of the
Shircliff Humanities Center at the corner of First and Harrison
streets on the VU campus.
Stepping Through the Past is a two-person exhibition that takes
on maternal loss and recontextualization of the past. The imagery
presented creates a connection and viewpoint that layers the past with
the present. Artist Leah Gose constructs dreamscapes that share family
relationships based on shared experiences decades apart, while Adriane
Little builds her imagery of visualizing text and image using data
mapping to explore the effect of loss.
Gose’s series, Questions of Stella, skillfully combines
postcards and Polaroid photographs to recontextualize memories of what
remain both physically and metaphorically. These dreamscapes are
rooted in the details presented... sometimes revealing and yet often concealing.
For Mapping Mrs. Dalloway, Little walked the streets of London
and photographed along the path that Mrs. Dalloway walks in Virginia
Woolf’s novel of the same name. These are the same streets that Woolf
herself walked countless times. Her intention was not to illustrate
the novel, but instead to use stream of consciousness in capturing the
images. After dividing the text of the novel into 20 sections, a word
count of the novel is then layered over each image as data
visualization that both obscures and reveals information within each image.
Shircliff Gallery of Art hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and 12-4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.
