MFA Thesis Exhibition: Haley Scarboro "Art as Ritual: The Realm Between Identities"
On View: March 3-9
Reception: March 3, 6-8 p.m.
'Ritualism is everywhere in the world and something that everyone takes part in, whether we acknowledge them or not. They are as simple and daily as a morning routine, or as monumental as remembering a loved one. The comparisons in Haley Scarboro’s thesis exhibition are within the concept of identity as it relates to the function of ritualism, and how it all comes together showcased in the concept of Ritual Art. For Scarboro, the identities represented are growing up in Georgia as well as being a practicing witch, and how rituals are vital to the identities themselves and the history they each hold. Symbolism plays a major role in the deciphering of the identities represented and how to display relatable emotions to a viewer not necessarily familiar with the iconography. Methods like time-based installation, documentation, and memory-fueled objects strike cords into the mind of a viewer.
