Christina Welzer: Ghost Face

Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 8:00am to 5:00pm

Experimental Gallery, Tjaden Hall

Ghost Face aims to draw attention to the generally female practice of internalizing loud feelings for fear of being deemed hysterical. But it also hopes to suggest that there is a type of quiet power that can be harnessed through this delicate art of holding back. The show features five laser-cut drawings that are suspended between panes of glass and held over a muted, flickering light. Difficult to photograph, the pieces must be experienced in person, within the confines of the darkened gallery space. Like a spider's web caught in sunlight, the drawings are completely invisible until suddenly they aren't.

Ghost Face features work by Christina Welzer (B.F.A. '19).
