Leslie Kerby: The World Contained
January 8 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Leslie Kerby’s work employs a variety of media to explore how identity and social narratives are constructed personally and collectively. The World Contained investigates the multivalent uses of boxes: as containment vessels within global trade and as temporary materials for low-cost housing. Through the course of the animation, Kerby creates a universe punctuated by shelters of boxes perpetually in flux. The collages of rectangles rotate in an orderly line while the cut-outs of hands and feet haphazardly navigate the matrix of structures under construction. The individual body parts move through the network that they create, intrinsically linked to the boxes and to themselves as they struggle to establish a sense of place against the stark background
