Dioramas of Disaster – Julie Gautier-Downes
During residencies at AIR Studio Paducah and the Vermont Studio Center in 2017, Julie Gautier-Downes began a series of miniature installations, which occupy smaller footprints than her previous, life-sized works. In Dioramas of Disaster, Gautier-Downes repurposed and assembled dollhouses, toys, and created objects to construct dioramas, which communicate narratives about domestic violence, trauma, the fragility of relationships. This work combines her experience working with found objects and abandoned homes with the symbolic significance of child’s play and early experiences as a foundation for future relationships.
Opening Reception on Friday, October 5th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
