Frye Art Museum First Hill
Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 15 2012
Stranger Genius Award winner Susie J. Lee presents with her spooky exhibit Of Breath and Rain. It features the installation Still Lives, a video portrait starring an old woman sleeping. Light falls on her breathing body and heavy darkness surrounds the light. What is the old woman dreaming about as she slowly breathes? The answer to this question appears in Rain Shower in the darkened room next to the portrait. Coupled with strange sounds that rise and fall, the ceiling is covered with little, blinking lights that plop their light on the floor. An ordinary dream of light, water, and fragments of music; however, no amount of effort could make her mind recover the memory of this shower. These are tiny and silent moments in a universe that's too vast, too much.
