Yet, By No Means: A Night of Projections with Sandy Carson
and Emma Whelan
Friday, November 16, 2012 - 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Free and Open to the Public
This performance will run concurrently with the opening reception of Yet, By No Means
Center Space Project presents a night of projections featuring found slides and Super 8 films from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Collected from locations around the globe by Sandy Carson, these slides will appear with selections from abandoned home movies reminiscent of the American Dream. The two immigrant artists will contest the ideology of American-ness through their juxtaposed projections, which question and negotiate the idea of home and belonging.
Sandy Carson (born 1972) is a photographer raised in Scotland and now based in Austin. He immigrated to the United States after he received his HND in Communications from The University Of The West Of Scotland.
Emma Whelan (born 1988) was raised in Tullinge, Sweden of Irish and Swedish parents, spending her upbringing transitionally between Sweden, Ireland, and the US. Currently based in Austin, she graduated with a BFA in Design, as well as a BA in Studio Art from The University of Texas in May 2012.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Yet, By No Means on view at the VAC November 16 – December 8
