a solo exhibition by Erinn M. Cox
After longing comes a silence. It is in the surrender to this quiet that I most starkly feel my unwanted solitude. Every year I spend alone my heart gets smaller; my sense of mortality more clearly defined. This resignation wills me to seek the means to be remembered, cherished, loved after I stop breathing – to create a legacy of and from loneliness, to leave eternal evidence of my presence in my absence.
When love has been denied and refused, the only truth left to hold onto is found in our remains: they are the identifiers of our very existence and the fidelities of what we leave behind. I wantonly submit parts of myself indiscriminately to the other, any other, because I have nothing left to give. I cast remnants of my living body – immortalized in bronze and silver – to place around the neck of another in hopes of erasing my inevitable disappearance and thus, becoming manifestly and intimately immortal.
The exhibition is open until January 28.
