This is the third of three videos of an art show at The Belfry in Hornell on Friday, May 9th. The exhibition was titled:
Religion. Blood. Hair. Cigarettes.
This show was the 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition of Jennifer Degges.
From the artist's statement: "Spaces like [The Belfry] allow for collaboration between the artist and the unique characteristics of a specific location. Due to its history, architecture and obvious visual remnants of time, the old church provides a charged context."
Neither videos or photos capture the details of these pieces of art. Many standing over six feet tall, every different angle evokes different "essential paradoxes engendered in human experience..."
Ms. Degges will be moving to Los Angeles, but these pieces of art are for sale. You can visit the artist's website at JenniferDegges.com
