UP&out is a whimsical, collaborative exhibition integrating video installation, collage and text.
This exhibit opens with two short films by Agis entitled Dreams and Page of Pentacles. These films highlight the back-and-forth, up-and-down tension between fear and fearlessness perpetuated by our individualized interpretation of experience.
To resolve this tension, the three artists developed a series of questions paired with images that playfully provoke viewers/readers to reexamine their habitual perception of reality and ultimately climb “up and out” into a new and expanded viewpoint.
Rounding off this exhibition, Agis isolates excerpts from Søren Kierkegaard’s philosophical work, Fear and Trembling. The selected text, referencing faith, hope and belief, are printed onto index cards and archived in a traditional card catalog. This interactive installation allows the viewer to thumb through the poetic and emotive language that characterizes Kierkegaard’s work. www.ForwardFokus.com
