Film Screening: Two Went In

Erica Scoggins, Two Went In, 2018

Two Went In is an experimental narrative film that follows two young friends as they leave the safety of their homes in search of a fabled cave. Drawing on the metaphorical connotations of the cave and the myth of the changeling, Two Went In symbolizes the trauma of puberty, sexual initiation, and the often unexplainable violence in this world. The local landscape becomes a portal from the familiar human-built space to the mysterious and sacred darkness within the earth.

Curatorial Brief:
Over time answers to the mysteries of the world, the ones hidden in the depths of the oceans, atop mountains, and embedded in the soil beneath our feet, have gradually revealed themselves. Similarly, there are mysteries of our own making, systematic forces of industry that see towns and cities, neighborhoods, rise up around us affecting how humans interact with one another, as well as their built and natural environments. But there is still more, so much more, maybe even too much.

Stove Works in collaboration with Daniel Fuller, Curator of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, introduces the exhibition, LAND AND SEA. Through sculpture, video, painting, and sound, LAND AND SEA explores how water, air, and soil, those specifically of Chattanooga and East Tennessee, are altered, inhabited, mythologized, reduced, abused, explored, and celebrated.

///////

Con el tiempo, las respuestas a los misterios del mundo, las que están escondidas en las profundidades de los océanos, en las montañas, e incrustadas en el suelo bajo nuestros pies, se han revelado gradualmente. De manera similar, hay misterios de nuestra propia creación, fuerzas sistémicas de la industria; que ven ciudades y pueblos, barrios, se elevan a nuestro alrededor y afectan la forma en que los humanos interactúan entre sí, así como sus entornos naturales y construidos. Pero aún hay más, mucho más, tal vez demasiado.

Stove Works en colaboración con Daniel Fuller, Curador del Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Atlanta, presenta la exposición, LAND AND SEA. A través de la escultura, el video, la pintura y el sonido, LAND AND SEA explora cómo el agua, el aire y el suelo, específicamente los de Chattanooga y el Este de Tennessee, se alteran, habitan, mitifican, reducen, abusan, exploran y celebran.

BORDERS, Jason Brown, 2018: 
In this performance action, artist-workers dressed in yellow coveralls and hard hats will create a simple blue chalk line grid of squares on the concrete pad in front of the exhibition space. As the grid is drawn, another worker will move the spectators from the audience into the grid space and divide them into separate boxes. The spectators will become participants separated by arbitrary borders. Although they will be free to move, the workers will be tasked with keeping them contained in the grid for the duration of the action. This collaborative project is an extension of the dialogue and practice of the Land Report Collective, especially in regard to borders that are enforced for political, social and economic purposes regardless of impact on individual people.

LAND AND SEA is supported by Lyndhurst Foundation, UNFoundation, and Sculpture Flats.
