A journey over water. On land, this journey. A journey through air. By wind, by oar, a journey. Across, over, away from, to. Never borderless, crossing border, hearing the call of the horizon. Landscape of the soil, of the water, of the mind.
Pan (Myotopia) is a multimedia installation exploring borders and relocation/dislocation, whether psychological, physical, or geographical. Employing a sad and comic sensibility, the work in this installation presents situations at once absurd and tragic. Through the use of images and forms that suggest landscape, bodies of water, and horizons, Lafayette’s assistant professor Nestor Armando Gil establishes deceptively simple environments to which viewers respond, bringing their own histories and perspectives to the experience.
Reception Thursday, October 18, 5-6:30 p.m.
