Kill The Lights
December 13th, 2012 6-9pm
During the season of lights four Boston-based artists do
something unusual- they kill them. Kill the Lights is a one night show at the Howard Art Project
in Dorchester, MA, that explores light as portal into and out of memory. Works varying from
photography to sculpture, from text to live performance, will illuminate the way light reveals
presence and when shut out, recalls absence. The show is free and open to the public.
The artists included are:
Ashley Wood grew up in Charleston, SC. She earned her BFA from Clemson University in 2011
and is currently in her thesis year of the MFA program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts,
Boston. Her work incorporates photography, text, and sculpture – discussing anxiety and memory
as it relates to childhood, religion, and the domestic space.
Valeska Freire Marulanda is a Venezuelan interdisciplinary artist who works primarily in video
and performance. Her work explores the progression of time through stillness and presence. She
is currently studying methods of desexualizing the female naked body in live performance art.
Molly Segal is a painter from Oakland, CA. Her work uses personal memory to investigate the
psychological ambiguities of interactions of young women. She often paints from video stills of
performative “re-stagings” of past events.
Courtney McClellan is an interdisciplinary artist from Greensboro, NC. Her work attempts to
manipulate the space-time relationship through writing, sculpture and performance. She creates
interventions small and large that demand presence from a viewer.
