Opening Reception for Periphery by Roger Boulay
Friday, Nov. 8th | 6 – 8 PM
Free and open to the public
Roger Boulay presents new photographs of defunct and re-purposed US military sites that ask questions about how place can have a memory. Many of these sites were previously or are currently environmental disasters. Soil and water are contaminated. Exposed asbestos remains in existing structures. In discovering this frequent common characteristic, the work holds an inherent critique of how our institutions treat the land. Within these sites, Boulay has also staged reenactments of speeches and battles or of mundane chores and daily activities thus evoking history among the ruins.
