Corvo Brothers: MORTE
10.12.13 - 11.2.13
ARTIST RECEPTION: SATURDAY 10.12.13, 7-10pm

Since coming together in 2004, the Corvo Brothers have used and misused the manipulative technologies of mass media to chart the realm of the uncanny. Their digitally sculpted composite photographs conjure unexpectedly painterly visions suffused with dread, myth and metamorphosis. Meticulous staging and traditional composition contend with ambiguous stories and darkly comic symbols - worlds apart yet uncomfortably familiar.
It is no surprise, then, that over the years the Corvo Brothers have created diverse images that incorporate into their mystierious narratives ritualistic representations of and responses to death. The dark stillness of a floating figure frozen in the murkiness of the tintype appears to be an unconventional death portrait. In semi-serious mythic scenes , children seem to be gods who transform the body into a passive receptacle. In their hands, the inevitable becomes unconventional.

My skin, the skin of a box without skin, floating*… 32 collars, six generations, 172 napkins, 12 pillows, 25 souvenirs, thousands of hours, miles of thread, traces of names, memories, voices, smells, sounds, emotions...
My skin, your skin is so much more then just the membrane separating me from you. Its lines connect, intersect, dissect… – you never know how, with what with whom you are connected - … We are existing in a tightly interrelated network of many voices and bodies - multidimensional multifunctional with our ability to remember and imagine, going beyond linear space and time. My skin, your skin is trans-generational, containing not only veins of hope, happiness, love, softness of its touch… but also of disappointments, grieving, dread, agony, anger… exploding where they should not, resulting in hema-toma…
By definition, a hematoma is a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel. It occurs because the wall of a blood vessel has been damaged and blood has leaked into tissues where it does not belong…
…like my hema-toma. We can have hema-toma on our body - our skin, but also WE can ourselves be hema-toma, not by blood causing them but instead when emotional barriers break and emotions explode...be this in a person or in a society, in a group or alone …be this in Birmingham, London, New York or Berlin last year, or Tunis, Cairo, Sana, Bahrain, Bengazi, Homs, Tripoli and other places with pressure still expanding their hema-toma….
Through my hema-toma hungry fescoes appear, disappear and then again reappear in the unique rhythm set forth by Missing Lullaby, calling to all those who are – or that are no longer - here in body… questioning not only what we see and what is looking at us, but also all that is sounded for us. All that spreads, sedates, meditates, hesitates underneath our skin and was thought of as non-existent now pulls at our attention, like a muse, biting hard and holding its grip loyally on us till we give into and acknowledge it. It is like a Hema-toma, growing, spreading, aching, swelling, until we cut it and drain it - offer our attention to it, the potential to reverse the whole process.

February 2 – April 7, 2012
Opening reception: Thursday, February 2, 7-9pm
The Metropolitan State College of Denver, Center for Visual Art proudly presents Out FIGURED, an exhibition where emotive interpretations of the human figure are explored. Curated by Associate Professor Jennifer Garner, works in photography, painting and sculpture help to reveal truths within human selfhoods. Historically, of all the subjects in art, none is more prevalent than the human figure. Out FIGURED demonstrates mastery of the figure paired with an intriguing, expressive dialogue between artist and viewer. Each representational work in the exhibition is psychologically charged, physically manipulated, eruptive or downright mysterious in their depictions. Viewers are confronted with an array of figurative expressions that yield both personal and stirring interpretations.
ARTISTS: John Coplans (1920-2003), Corvo Brothers (Boulder, CO), Irene Delka McCray (Denver, CO), Jenny Morgan (New York, NY), Marie Vlasic (Denver, CO) Christina West (Atlanta, GA)
