“A Thirsty Person” by Jessica Segall examines the connection between creativity and survival.
Remote places such as the Arctic are the setting for Segall’s work.
“The labor intensive and often humorous work necessitates collaboration with video, sound and costume design,” said the gallery in a press release about the exhibit, “and illustrates the uninhabitable places upon which we all depend for survival.”
Segall, who is also a musician, lives and works in New York City.
An opening reception will be held tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. with an artist talk.
The exhibit will be on view through Saturday, March 16.
