Emily Ginsburg: Mixed Feelings

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday September 18
Nine Gallery
122 NW 8th Ave.
 
For millennia, artists, writers and composers have pondered the relationship between the heart and the mind. Artist Emily Ginsburg is particularly interested in what happens when all three of those disciplines come together in search of ellusive answers to the eternal conundrum: Where do emotions and thoughts intersect? She has taken song titles from pop music and turned them into graphic elements in mirror image. Half the songs are about feelings, the other half about thoughts. She then turns the song titles 90 degrees and lines them up at varying lengths, like lines on an EKG readout. It’s an ingenious visual-conceptual conceit, which turns the dialectic between heart and head into a diagram of our very life pulse. These are the critical elements of our psyches, so often at cross purposes, the maddeningly irregular heartbeats of our days and restless nights. Through Sept. 29.
