ANGELICA BERGAMINI | IVY BROWN GALLERY
June 17, 2021 - August 17, 2021
What does your silence sound like, the wind, the sea, rain, blood running through your veins, your breath, is there such a thing as nothingness? Is silence subjective? There is no wrong answer as this is an abstract and idiosyncratic question, but it intrigues me and peaks my curiosity. At its best the pandemic has given us a different landscape to view ourselves, it’s created a new context for our objectivity.
We have posed this title to a group of artists to see what their silence looks like and expressed through their art. As our lives to return and the quietude fades can we incorporate the essence of the sensibility of silence into the timber of our being? We can certainly try to take what this time has taught us as we move forward.
The show will run from June 17-August 17 and the work will rotate at the halfway point on July 17.
Participating artists in alphabetical order: Ashley Benton, Angelica Bergamini, Joshua Goode, Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen, Ak Jansen, Elizabeth Jordan, Kenjiro Kitade, Juliet Martin, David Mellen, Judy Rushin-Knopf & Camilla Taylor.
Poetry reading by Jonathan Goodman, Thursday, June 24th 7-8.30pm
