ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Emily Promise Allison’s Futility Index is a new performance-based photo series that playfully explores physical and philosophical approaches to the concept of balance.
Fleeting moments between certainty and doubt parallel the authentic brevity of stability and biological life.
Join us for the opening on October 22nd from 3:30pm – 5:00pm. The artist will be in attendance, and would like to invite attendees to participate in an interactive component of the exhibition.
Emily Promise Allison is a Canadian conceptual artist who uses photography and performance to create images that embrace surreal, metaphysical, and dreamlike qualities. The purpose of her work is to activate curiosity, stimulate a sense of wonder, and enable a collapse of status and expectation concerning theoretical knowledge versus lived experience. Emily regards the imagination as a fundamental sense that allows us to find or create magic within systems regulated by logic; celebrating the strange nature of existence and the absurdity of life.
