Body Horror - An Exhibition of Prints by Juliet Grodzins

Body Horror - An Exhibition of Prints by Juliet Grodzins

Body Horror is an exploration of the coexistence of the body and brain when burdened with dysmorphia, depression, and anxiety. This work aims to analyze and expose the fear the artist feels on a day to day basis. There is an indescribable subtle terror in living in a body that feels completely alien to it’s being. The artist uses her own body as a subject and displays it in distorted positions and situations in an attempt to portray the discomfort felt living in this body. The work attempts to separate the physical from the emotional, primarily to show the artist herself, as well as the viewer, that this is her body. 

Each print is made in the black and white darkroom by Juliet Grodzins on 20”x24”Adox MCC 110 Silver Gelatin paper with Moersch Catechol & Neutral tone two bath development.

Please join us for a reception with the artist on Friday October 19th from 6:30-9:30pm. Snacks and drinks will be available.

"A Void, Reality" Opening Reception

"A Void, Reality" Opening Reception

Photographs by BCD Member Amira Wedeman

 

A Void, Reality explores the invisible battles we all face, often quietly and alone, hidden only by our human skin. It explores a disjointed reality fumbling around trying to make sense of this world, wearing a casing to keep our souls from escaping.

We live many lives in this reality, the ones we show everyone else and the ones we hide from everyone else.

In this exhibit Amira plays with multiple exposure, perception, geometry and shapes to distort bodies to portray a world of disorientation and alienation.

We hope you will join us from 6:30-9:30pm on Friday September 7th for a reception with the artist.

If you've been to the darkroom the chances are good you've seen the two faces featured in the image above. 

Paulie is our landlord and Punch is the lady that sits outside Castle Braid & gives you candy if you let her punch you. She's either named Maria or Elena depending on who you talk to when and she's super excited that we're having a show in her honor. 

We've pulled together a collection of portraits of Maria/Elena the "punch lady" and have invited her and all of you to join us for an evening of celebration of the characters in our lives.

Cold Comforts: A Narrated Slideshow

Samuel Lang Budin presents "Cold Comforts," a narrated slide show.

“Cold Comforts” is a triple travelog, which details the following:

-The artists's voyage of self-discovery (abortive) around the Pacific Northwest in 2014.
-The artist's family’s various, desperate attempts (historical) to outrun and escape themselves.
-The artist's grandmother’s long, slow, descending road through senility and toward death.

It is of pertinent interest to everyone who has ever encountered: personal shame, identity conflicts, Megabus, Boltbus, the Watcom County Transit Authority Bus, dementia.
