Helen Maurene Cooper: Other Waters: the Aquatic Valley
Helen Maurene Cooper is a photographer who engages cultures and communities of women to find the intersection of race, class, and feminism. The subject of her current work is the people of the central gulf coast of Florida and the local community near the location of the historic Weeki Wachee Mermaid show. Like her past series about Chicago nail and prom cultures, Cooper has isolated specific currents of localized human behavior that reveal deep truths about our nature as socialized beings.
Laurie Hassold: Flutter and Crawl
Laurie Hassold makes sculptures that she hold up the world as possible “future fossils;” remnants of what could be and might well be as a result of the impact of our species on the planet. Fully speculative yet imbued with a reverence for Nature and its brutal force, these creatures are amoral and magnificent.
