Having been struck seven separate times by lightening across a period of 35 years, Roy Sullivan died in 1985 from natural causes. And, although generally conceived of as improbable, lightening does in fact strike in the same place twice. Luckily, “love at first sight”—coup de foudre in French and colpo di fulmine in Italian—literally translate as “lightening strike.” An exploration in the fallibility and mistranslation of language and desire, telltale hearts, slight explosions, and walls collide with the slip of the tongue. Offering up the simultaneous possibility to see and not to see, represented here are works that revel in complicating representations of idiosyncratic expression.
