David Russell in the Faculty of Theater to start with released LACUNA, which refers to a missing aspect or a gap, at the Currents New Media Pageant in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in June 2019. Given that then, Galvano and Russell have expanded the breadth and scale of the operate for the Kennedy Museum of Artwork exhibition, Galvano stated.

“It’s a good satisfaction to install the perform in the roomy East galleries and to receive guidance from the attractive museum school and pupils at the Kennedy Museum of Artwork,” Galvano reported. “Working from our studios at house in Athens, we had been in a position to go deeper into the unusual aspiration of LACUNA, and to craft a considerate exhibition.”  

A puppeteer, as effectively as a theatrical craftsman and designer, Russell devised the Bramble Puppet, featured in the exhibition, in a master class at the New England Puppet Intensive in 2018.

“As I created the Bramble Puppet, I contemplated its company, as if it experienced interior motivations,” Russell explained. “I recognized that by translating this activity with a end-movement technique, a kind of open up-finished narrative could be built, so I built an eight-minute movie.”

The exhibition is open up right until March 6, 2022.
