Sam Jury: Coerced Nature
Presented by Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University
February 13 - June 9, 2013
Jury’s tense, painterly videos give visual form to the notion of suspended trauma, in particular the fraught relationship between human beings and our environment. Her videos meld staged, fragmented performances with eerily familiar yet unrecognizable places. These impossible scenes, slow and entrancing, hover outside a specific time, location or even artistic genre while feeling utterly contemporary. Jury’s work will be projected onto sculptural forms, walls, and windows, with some work intervening on Brandeis’ public spaces.
