Secret Acts: Exhibition Catalog
March 20-29, 2013 at Fourth Wall Project, Boston, MA
Secret Acts features four artists who turn private acts into public narrative, examining reality/fiction, ritual/restitution and past/present.
This 52 page, full color catalog includes works from the show and other related images and texts, including an essay by Erik Benjamins.
Daniel Embree appropriates gestures from Mormon rituals and examines gay issues within Mormonism, including marginalization, exclusion and paradox. Monica Lynn Manoski creates fragile armor made of sugar to recall and address her struggle with an eating disorder. Courtney McClellan transgresses the limits of imagination, text and three-dimensional space through the lens of Virginia Woolf. Ashley L. Wood explores “wrongness” through the repetition and deterioration of memory within the boundaries of the photograph. This is an MFA thesis exhibition for the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
