She’d Hallucinate Ghosts

Drawings and Projections, at the Tahoe Gallery, 2008.



The exhibition traced the contours of a mind that’s in the process of failing. There were multiple images of a frail old woman, sometimes surrounded by visions that don’t quite correspond to the reality around her. Two large-format drawings were “colored in” by digital projections, which included brief animations that provided missing elements of the drawings themselves. The old woman’s hallucinations of ghosts, and of improbable visitations by gatherings of birds, alternately seem to comfort her, and to provide her an index for her deterioration.
