FSU Art Alum Ruth Dusseault is showing at Dash Galleries in Atlanta, Georgia in Dialogue: Conflict/Resolution (Voices of external and internal combat).
Opening: Feb 13, 6-10PM
Gallery Hours: M, W, F, 4-9PM & Sat, 12-2PM
With boundless connectivity, we are able to see, read about, and watch a world very much in conflict. In some instances, our direct participation happens involuntarily given variables like physiology, social constructs, and systemic prejudices. Individual agency may come in choosing how to process emotion and information, and by developing language. For Dialogue: Conflict/Resolution, 6 artists examine various notions of conflict. What results are distinct moments of grace as they search for resolution.
Ruth Dusseault’s “Theory of Killing” (on the left) Portrays veterans of wars re-acclimation issues and documented therapeutic & aggressive paintball sessions. The audience will be immersed in the environment of false war through sound and video causing agitation, ultimately leading to empathy for the main character in the videos. Artist Talk: March 4, 7pm
