Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky

January 17 - March 24, 2017 | 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Free Event -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lecture: Feb. 2, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium Opening reception: Friday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Drones are in the news. They carry out targeted killings; they are manned with cameras to record movements on the ground; hobbyists fly them in public spaces; Amazon wants to use them to deliver their products. Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Drones is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. “The Drones” function like a photographic bricolage of buildings. The cut of a scissors and Photoshop suggest something crucial about Drones: their immediate extraterrestrial appearance places them in a space between reality and fiction mirroring our own abstract experience (via the Internet). Bio: Karina Aguilera Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions.
