Description
Tamara Suarez Porras has constructed a site-specific installation in Meyer Library that considers three total solar eclipses: 1979, 2017, and 2024. eclipsis is the outcome of a long process of digging, accumulating and collecting photographs and ephemera, and re-contextualizing them. In doing so, new meanings are constructed and spaces are altered. Eclipsis, a word puzzle: eclipse, ellipsis, eclipsis...It reveals porras’ “habit” of distilling material to evoke multiple readings of an object. Starting with an installation of two videos and floor-to-ceiling wallpaper in the storefront, the audience is invited to two parallel yet fragmented spaces. The show unfolds as you walk into the library listening to a sound piece created by Sei Harris. To listen, scan the QR code or stream it through the URL.
