Sep. 26-Oct. 17, weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Gallery at Bloch Hall
The tangible doorknobs without doors, the visual description of non-tangible ropes, and the use of fragile paraffin mold vs. metal screws create a paradoxical and contradictory statement. The purpose of the project is to enhance an awareness and better understanding of the different processes involved in our social and cultural context of the identity question.  My hope is to trigger the larger audience by allowing them a reflective moment, which will direct them expectantly towards retracing their own history and by leading them to question “what is reality” and “what defines us.”

Individuals needing disability-related accommodations during this event should contact the host department or Disability Support Services (205.665.6250, as early as possible. Efforts will be made to accommodate all access requests regardless of timing, but the University cannot guarantee that requests made with less than one week’s notice can be met.
