Visual Artist Claudia Hart’s – The Ruins
Claudia Hart’s new exhibition, The Ruins, opens September 10th, 2pm-8pm at Bitforms Gallery.
“The Ruins implements still lifes, the classical form of a memento mori, to contemplate the decay of western civilization, using as its central metaphor the canons of modernist painting and the manifestos of failed utopias. Hart positions The Ruins as an antidote to a world in crisis, navigating from a Eurocentric paradigm of fixed photographic capture into a reality of malleable and inherently unstable computer simulations and systemic collapse. The exhibition provides a different notion of time, a present that viewers experience through the possibility of simulation technologies that use scientific data to model natural forces, the crystallization of past, future and present into a perpetual now.”
View The Ruins virtually here!
Viewing by appointment only (6 guests at a time in 30-minute intervals), book here!
Drink Or Sip While You Wait
Guests are encouraged to stop by Joey Bats Cafe, which offers outdoor seating. It’s a lovely spot to grab drinks before or after attending the exhibition.
The Ruins will be featured at Ars Electronica’s 2020 Festival
