Absolute Monarchy – a screen printed installation simulating the Hall of Mirrors from the Palace of Versailles. Corkery’s Hall of Mirrors confounds any comfortingly rational notion of the real. With refreshing wit, the artist renders porous the traditional boundaries between prints and architecture, surface and depth, image and matter. Her installation folds together the past and the present, and subverts any simplistic ideologies of technological progress by interweaving analog and digital processes. The installation compels us to reexamine the relations between our conceptions of value, visuality, and representation.
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, MARCH 30, 5-8PM
