Kacie Baker: Cyanocosm
The Art Galleries at TCU presents Cyanocosm, Kacie Baker‘s MFA Thesis Exhibition. Cyanocosmwill be on view at Moudy Gallery from March 25 - 29, 2019, with an opening reception on Monday, March 25th, from 5-7pm.
Cyanocosm investigates the movement of the human body through nature, and how the body interacts with and manipulates the spaces it inhabits. This installation of cyanotype prints, created during communal outdoor excursions, encourages the viewer to move through and interact with the work in the gallery space. This action mimics the way a viewer would interact with nature in an outdoor space. Using a malleable installation, Baker encourages viewers to move around the work, manipulate the work, and become a part of the work, which gives power to the viewer in the artist-viewer relationship.
