LATE NIGHT: GENESES — Kerry Lessard


NOVEMBER 27, 10PM-6AM

Performance of the artist on the path to their work. Join the musicians, writers, and artists during the genesis of their current works. For Late Night: Genesis, we turn the main gallery of The Hollows Artspace into the artist's studio, with their furniture, from desks, to beds, to objects peculiar to their creation. Witness their unique methods of working and ways of composing, thinking, studying, rehearsing.

KERRY LESSARD

Kerry Lessard will be turning the studio wall space into an expanded diagram of her research of various crimes in her hometown of Manchester, New Hampshire. Collaging these letters, federal documents and photos will then give way to the making of drawings and paintings which will eventually be incorporated into the installation.

Kerry Lessard’s work is concerned with the politics of viewing violence. Her father’s research from his career as a homicide detective is used as source material. The paintings and drawings she makes are snapshots of seemingly anodyne scenes but are depictions of people and places affected by crime.
