Amy Ballinger and Rebecca Krinke bring a shared interest in the fantastical space between physical and otherworldly realms to The Gap Between Worlds. Both artists embrace working in and with “the gap” as the space where dreaming and being awake mingle to conjure a space for transformation. Ballinger’s photographs create a time and space that resembles reality, but upon closer look it is implausible. It is a metaphor for a dream, or altered consciousness, where the narrow channel of reality we travel on from life until death is expanded. Krinke’s art has its origins in a potent and mysterious dream. Her installations have developed through four sequential dreams of specific animals, and all have pointed toward a next stage of being. In her new large-scale installation, Submerged, the eye of an octopus hovers above a writing desk within an uncanny reading room, beckoning to the primordial, to the unknown, and to what cannot be said.

 

Sentiment of Submergence - Audio Walk 
By Artist Lauren Arndt
Vocals and music by Hannah Morton, Kitchen Congregation - on Spotify and Apple Music

An immersive audio experience that encourages a direct interaction with the amazing work of Rebecca Krinke and Amy Ballinger in The Gap Between Worlds. Inspired by their installation and photography work, Sentiment of Submergence, takes the listener on a path of both inward and outward rediscovery as they step in and out of memories and even cross the threshold into the fantastic. Our bodies are powerful vessels for holding life’s memories and experiences, both good and bad - this work is inspired by the body’s ability to communicate when there are no words to speak. Trust your body and stay curious, always.

Headsets will be provided or you may bring your own. See the WBCA front desk for assistance.
