'Still/Live' is the current exhibit at Eastern's Art Gallery; it runs through Feb. 22. 'Still/Live' explores how four contemporary artists working in photography and time-based media (video and kinetic sculpture) have reimagined the genre of still life. Mauricio Alejo's photographs and videos focus on everyday objects in familiar domestic spaces. Through these careful arrangements, Alejo invites the viewer to see simple objects anew. While Dave Greber's trilogy of video loops combine still lifes with video game aesthetics, Cynthia Greig uses drawing and photography to create hybrid still life image and videos. Through his kinetic sculptures, Robin Mandel draws upon the still life tradition to investigate tension between stillness and motion, presence and absence, materiality and immateriality.
