All Hail

The third of three exhibitions curated by Lee Maelzer
15 April - 8 May 2011

“Traditionally, good comes from above, from heaven, while evil rises out of the earth. But with the first aerial bombardments, we learned that evil primarily inhabits the sky and rains down on the earth. And thus a certain ambiguity in relation to the heavens has developed. Not only at the level of the individual subjectivity of the artist, but in the consciousness of the masses as well.”
- Boris Groys

All Hail features five artists using a variety of media in an exhibition about the sky and its connotations, good or evil.
Some paint from an aerial viewpoint as though hovering at the rooftops or the horizon line. In other works there is an allusion to the sacred implications of stretching skyward. They explore electrical storms, atmospheric shifts and religious symbolism.
The magic and mystery of what is, or is imagined to be above us: clouds and the heavens, birds or bombs.
