Artist Talk with Meghan Boody
Aperture Gallery and Bookstore (547 West 27th St., Manhattan)
Aperture Foundation, in collaboration with the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons the New School for Design, is pleased to present an artist talk with Meghan Boody. Grounded in the realm of the tableau and using digital montage, Boody depicts spaces pulled directly from her own imagination. For a stage set she chooses an arctic tundra, an English moor, or vast palatial interiors, spaces which she populates with children, women, exotic animals, space-age machines, and unbridled natural forces. For Boody, these unlikely combinations compose a largely symbolic palette that deals in metaphor. Childhood, adolescence, fantasy, somnambulism, and deconstructed psychology are just some of the themes she engages. Her photographic practice bubbles over into multimedia sculpture, and Boody is gracefully fluent across mediums.
