Mnemonic Ritual looks at the uncomfortable subject of loss, mourning, and the remnants of what was. Too often the ritual passage of death and loss are shuffled along at a pace so quick, there is little time to reflect. However, artists Mary Cecile Gee, Gina Genis, and Nigel Poor reflect on the difficult moments between loss and moving on. In their own personal endeavors to work through this process, what the artists work with are the very materials that are left behind, inherent with history and aura. What becomes distilled from the process are sometimes unexpected reactions of utter irony, humor, beauty, and surprisingly, even joy. Curated by Grace Kook-Anderson, curator of exhibitions at Laguna Art Museum, a full-color brochure will accompany the exhibition.
