Cohn Drennan Contemporary will partner with the 28th Annual Meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts, hosted by Southern Methodist University October 9 – 12, 2014 with a series of video installations by Washington, DC artist, David Carlson. The series will open September 13 and culminate with a presentation by the artist October 10th during the SLSA conference.
The 2014 SLSA Conference will be about how the concept of fluid in the arts, sciences, and humanities evokes multiple, overlapping definitions that work across and around the edges of disciplinary boundaries. Fluid can describe the property of flow, particles that move freely among themselves and that form and deform under pressure. It can refer to liquids both bodily and cultural, for example, blood and capital. It evokes anything that is not solid, fixed, or stable.
Four videos, Flow, Confluence, Cyrcle and Water in the Sky, will be installed at the gallery. Through video, I isolate water from its natural surroundings and place it into circumstance that opens the audience to a state of receptivity and thought not normally associated with water. Images form a bridge between the consciousness of the water and the consciousness of the viewer. I don’t tame the water. It is uncontrolled except for compositional placement, contrast and time shifts. Improvising, to isolate, as to see the quiddity of the water within the space is the objective. – David Carlson
David Carlson was selected for this project due to his video installations exploring water that have recently been exhibited at the 6th World Water Forum in Aix en Provence, France, the Take Me to the River cultural exchange project at the Iturria Foundation in Montevideo, Uruguay, and purchased by the Finnish Embassy in Washington, DC.
