Hawn Gallery Exhibit: “Julie Morel: Clear, Deep, Dark”

Opening reception: Friday, January 26, 5-7 p.m.; artist talk at 5:45 p.m.

Clear, Deep, Dark features new works by Julie Morel. Morel’s work examines the transformation of objects and their versions - their original physical forms and new manifestations the objects take online.

The exhibition at the Hawn Gallery presents a series of prints and drawings that are, in fact, titles of art works located on personal hard drives, in private spaces, or they are indexes of pages found on the Darknet, all of which remain inaccessible to the audience. These titles and indexes are literally “brought to light” within the exhibition space: all of the prints and drawings are made with conductive ink and embedded with LEDs. Viewers are therefore placed in a situation where they first see the exhibition as abstract constellations of light, and only after getting closer to the work can they read the actual inscriptions.

Hours: Mon. - Thurs.: 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.;
Fri.: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.;
Sat.: 12 - 5 p.m.;
Sun.: 2 - 9 p.m.
