Form+Content Gallery presents READING BETWEEN THE LINES, an exploratory installation by Ellie Kingsbury. Though a veteran in fine art photography, Kingsbury has recently been exploring social issues through room-sized installation projects.
READING BETWEEN THE LINES is inspired by conversations with people experiencing homelessness and signers (a term associated with people standing on street corners with a cardboard sign asking for help). It will feature large pieces of cardboard, onto which people experiencing homelessness have written their stories. The work will be displayed to resemble housing, but clearly insufficient to actually provide shelter. Its descending sizes and placement are reminiscent of dominoes, signifying the many issues at stake when facing unstable housing.
Kingsbury has collaborated with individuals and with St. Stephen's Human Services to create this work.
The opening reception for READING BETWEEN THE LINES will take place from 6:00-8:00PM on Saturday, October 20th. St. Stephen's Human Services will be on site at the reception to answer questions and talk with visitors.
The exhibit will be up from October 18th - November 24th, 2018. Form+Content Gallery is open Thursday-Saturday, 12:00-6:00.
The exhibit is free and open to the public.
