Jordan Faye Contemporary, in continuing its tradition of showcasing the work of young and emerging artists, is pleased to present a group pop-up exhibition of photographs and video by students from Towson University.  The work in this exhibition is varied but common themes emerge and coalesce around interrogations of time, self, place, and memory as they relate to human relationships, the metaphysics of existence, and manifestations of techno culture in this digital age.

Partial Artist Statement

I am connected to the earth; its smell is savory, sweet.  I dig my fingers into the soil. Worms seek cover, mysteriously disappearing into the underworld.  And if, like Alice, I were to follow the rabbit, its white bushy tail disappearing down the hole, if I were to follow and fall into the earth what would be revealed to me on the underside? The garden speaks to me of the possibility of another world, a parallel universe where things are not what they seem.
