A Language Beyond Words

In the House of the Mineral Spirits
The performance is past, but the show continues. There are multiple videos to be seen. On opening night, in conversation, an onlooker and I agreed that there is "something there" that we could not quite describe in Dean Ebben's videos. There is vulnerability, at times innocence and almost always mystery. We agreed that his work is full of a language beyond words.

Pictured above is a still from the video If I Could Roll It Out Of Me. This is the video that convinced me to invite Dean to create a show here.

The show continues to the end of February.

Susan Hensel Gallery hours: Monday 10-5 and by very generous appointment.
