Exhibiting works on paper and a video animation created in collaboration with designer Lianne Arnold. Catalog essay by Paul D'Agostino, Ph.D.

“In The Laying On of Hands, one of Leslie Kerby’s most polyphonic bodies of work to date, the artist turns her critical eye towards one of the most politically charged, ideologically divisive, societally expansive and, at the very same time, most deeply intimate issues of our time in the United States: our healthcare system. By tapping into a broad range of her artistic skills and techniques — drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media collage, among others Kerby has crafted one of her most fully realized, conceptually seamless bodies of work to date.”

The World Contained II video animation, is a collaboration between visual artist Leslie Kerby designer Lianne Arnold and sound designer Elisheba Ittoop, presented in BRIC’s Garage Door Video Series.

The animation is part of a work on paper and sculpture series using shipping containers and their re-use as a construct. A now ubiquitous element of global trade, containers are increasingly repurposed as shelters and used in new community applications. The animation references this dynamic. The schedule follows:

In addition, BRIC Radio has recorded a conversation between Leslie Kerby and independent journalist Alexis Madrigal about this project and his related research for the 8-part podcast Containers—“it looks at how global trade really works and the people who do the labor of moving stuff.”
