Haley & Raven - We used to come here, the record player in your room was always on. I miss us, I miss you... Why did I push you away? I'm so stupid! I... I'm sorry. I wish I could say that to you. ~ Haley
Artist Mary Lum strolls around the city photographing the urban environment—buildings, railings, stairwells, and other architectural details. She then deconstructs these photos and collages them with acrylic paint, creating dynamic, unique spaces for viewers to occupy and explore. At the deCordova Biennial, Lum’s images left me feeling both exhilarated and disoriented, as though I were in a dream where the environment was familiar, yet not quite right. What is fact and what is fiction?
