Brandon Ballengee; Le Sang Noir: Feb 15 – March 31

Published December 12, 2018

February 15 – March 31

Opening Reception: February 15, 6-8pm 

Gallery Talk: March 2, 11am

In 2010, Louisiana-based artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée saw firsthand the largest environmental disaster in United States history—the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Le Sang Noir (“Black Blood”) is a visual response to this tragedy. Locked in jars, suspended in alcohol, posed in petri dishes, Ballengée’s forms tell stories of species altered and obliterated. His prints, sculptures, and field projects are a narrative of human impact in the Anthropocene. By implicating us in their creation, the projects also inspire us to learn more about life in these complex, often fragile ecosystems. Le Sang Noir will be on display from February 15 through March 31.
