For the exhibition, Robert Barsamian will present a large sculptural installation. A phantom image of a home, an outline of a building, a 28’x 8’x 10’ structure that presents an idea. The idea is to make the shape welcoming, so that viewers will see the reclaimed wooden floor as an invitation to walk upon. Three large drawings, deconstructed into strips, hang down inside the structure. These images are from three specific skirmishes he draws from for his research: the Syrian Civil war, The Somalian Civil War, and the Cambodia‐Vietnam War. In each, a mother clutches a child, mourning with the intensity that recalls The Pieta. When walking through it, the viewer feels as though they are part of it, that there’s a connection to be made, an outlet for grief.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through July 13.
