This exhibition of two interconnected installations explores both the micro and the macro notions of community responsibility. These striking installations are comprised of sculptural elements as well as video and sound. These multimedia installations engage the viewer on several sensory levels, immersing them in a space between a state of anxiety and calm.
The first installation Sensorium is a large suspended silk house on which a video is projected where images fade and layer over each other and sounds of nature and technology intertwine creating a space that pulls the viewer in. Vose Jones draws inspiration from real incidences within Canadian communities which have dealt with loss of home, safety, and autonomy.
The second installation is a smaller more intimate sculptural work, Entangled Community. This installation again combines sculpture and video installation. This piece evokes the fragility of the world with a tiny community precariously perched on its deteriorating surface. Projections of disruptions both human and technological hit the surface of the planet like a sun. The interplay of the projections on the tiny community and the shadows cast draws the viewer in to observe and contemplate the precariously balanced community.
Vose Jones is a sculptor, installation artist and writer living and working in Fredericton NB. She has her MFA from Maine College of Art in Portland, USA. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
