FIU Faculty Exhibition of the Art & Art History Department
Wednesday, September 7, 2011 — Sunday, October 2, 2011
The annual FIU Faculty Exhibition of the Art & Art History Department features the work of Bill Burke and Mette Tommerup.
Tommerup constructs a confrontational experience that demands immediate response with the ambition of soliciting an "a-ha" moment that will move her audience through self-reflection, from one state of comprehension to another more enlightened state.
Burke is similarly fixated with here and now preserving objects by plucking them from their past, and through preservation he suspends them in time denying their decay, and lastly by reinventing their purpose he does not allow them to be forgotten.
