Spacetime of One's Own
Using literary and scientific theory, this show addresses a woman's deepest need to create and her desire for the necessary time to do so. Inspired by Virginia Woolf's famous extended essay, A Room of One's Own, and Albert Einstein's space-time theory, Erixån's exhibit creates an artist's studio inside of the gallery. Taking Woolf's list of required conditions for creativity, including: freedom, money, and a room, Erixån filters these themes through the theory of space-time. In physics, this concept removes the separation between space and time, and envisions a compact universe with all three dimensions of space and a fourth dimension of time. This theory provides for a curved room, or in this case a studio, where everything happens at once.
The Glittering Point
The Glittering Point refers to the phrase "glittering generalities," a mid-nineteenth century description of propaganda involving vague words or phrases used to evoke positive feelings rather than to convey information. Employing sensational imagery of war, sparkling luxury items, and political campaigns culled from The New York Times, this exhibition includes prints, paper-cuts, and drawings that explore the moment when symbols cease to direct, support, or explain logically, and instead provoke generalized sensations of the sublime.
