’Present Perfect: Alicia Eggert, Solo Exhibition’

- Location: Cohen Center
(12:00 PM - 2:00 PM)
Date: Sept. 10 - Oct. 11
Location: Cohen Center
Open Reception: Friday, Sept. 13
Time: 5-7 p.m.

In Present Perfect, Alicia Eggert presents a body of work that serves as an ongoing investigation of time. Works including drawing, photography, neon, and kinetic sculpture, juxtapose cyclical, linear, finite, and infinite representations of time.

One kinetic sculpture repeatedly creates and destroys the word NOW, but just like time itself, it never quite comes to a complete stop. Another sculpture has been programmed to have a human lifespan, and to "die" after 78 years. A photograph of a man looking at his watch captures a dying gesture, and a 12-foot-long drawing measures time in feet and inches.

If time is a construct, Present Perfect seeks to figure out how, exactly, it’s constructed. To view more work of Alicia’s visit: www.aliciaeggert.com.
