grayDUCK Gallery presents Rebecca Marino: The Best Available Evidence opening reception
The Best Available Evidence was initially inspired by a found document compiled to prove the existence and legitimacy of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Using the aforementioned subject matter, this body of work was created as a light-hearted way to play with the idea of proof and to question personal thresholds of belief. What indicates reliability? Truth? These standards are dictated by the tug-o-war of desire and cynicism. By manipulating the vulnerabilities of various mediums and, most importantly, context, new implications arise and connections are made between the mundane and the remarkable.
The exhibition will feature an original soundtrack recorded by Not Now Underground, an experimental songwriting duo creating thoughtful, deliberately conceived music to enhance visual or experiential art. For The Best Available Evidence, they utilized the concepts of redaction, misinterpretation, and the disquieting feeling of losing a word on the tip of your tongue.
Following the opening reception, the exhibition runs until May 1.
