Silent. Silence. Silenced, at Atlantic Works Gallery, pits the duality of
quietude vs. inquietude within a provocative month-long show that is
likely to stir up some controversy.
Exploring the particulars of
silence, Boston artists Charlene Liska and
Christine Palamidessi slide
between sound made visible and the unquiet silence of nature; between
the shrouding of a spokesperson and the aftershock of decapitated
Each artist takes a different approach while working
together to consider both the existential character of silence as well
as the modes-of-being that cause us to remain or appreciate the silent,
whether we have been made speechless by regime or silenced by awe.
Palamidessi’s sculptural work and monoprints re-mythologize noisy
historical and contemporary events, with deliberate subtraction of sound
and actions of self- censorship.
Using video and photography, Liska layers the
psychological with the scientific, looking at the unreliability of
perception and sound, the anxiety resulting from loss of signal, and,
finally, the joy of small sounds.
