Opening Tuesday, December 17th at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is a BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works solo exhibition by Lilli Carré. The exhibition is composed of an entirely new body of work in animation, sculpture, and drawing, highlighting new directions in her creative process. Sculptures are displayed in pairs to show the objects in two separate states of being, while their dimensional forms are abstracted, flattened, and reflected in accompanying drawings. A new work, made specifically for this installation, consists of two videos projected on opposite walls. The dual projection reveals slowly shifting temporal relationships between images, which alternate between abstraction and figuration, and positions the viewer in the empty space between the two animations. The artist encourages viewers to interpret this space and play an active role in filling the gap between objects and their resonant images.


“BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works: Lilli Carré” is on view through April 15th, 2014.
