Tunnel of Love, new works by Britni Bicknaver
July 11 - 26, 2015
Opening reception: Saturday, July 11, 7:00 - 11:00 pm
Live(In) Gallery announces its July show, Tunnel of Love, new works by Britni Bicknaver. Tunnel of Love is a body of work examining vital components for life, inspired by the desires of our farthest ancestors. Bicknaver’s work often delves into history, both real and imagined. Her work involves sculptural elements, some of which call back to dioramas and other specimen-like or heritage objects.
The subject of these newest works is inspired by elements which motivate us, and connect us to our earliest ancestors. She carefully constructs objects that become icons for what drives humans, both now and historically. Through these works the viewer is able to create a time line connecting themselves to our ancestors. In one such work Bicknaver creates a rock, from which a single four leaf clover grows. In a second work she sculpts a breast, which hangs from the wall, disembodied.
Britni Bicknaver is an artist living in Cincinnati. She received her BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and is entering DAAP's MFA program this fall.
Please come celebrate the opening of Tunnel of Love at Live(In) Gallery on July 11th!
