Water: Three States (Phase 2):  

Xavier Cortada, Andy Behrle, Daniel Kariko

October 12th through November 10th, 2009

Biggin Gallery, 101 Biggin Hall
Auburn University

Phase II of Water: Three States continues the conversation started in Phase I by contrasting the power of water to overwhelm human society to the hopeful potential for growth and restoration. Daniel Kariko, a Florida-based photographer, presents Storm Season, a series of pinhole photographs that document the on-going erosion of the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of recent hurricanes. Similarly, Andy Behrle, a sculptor living and working in Alabama, deals directly with the corrosive forces of water on natural and synthetic materials in his large-scale installations. Their investigations of the persistent and sometimes devastating powers of water are quietly counterbalanced by the continued growth of Xavier Cortada’s live mangrove seedlings (see Water: Three States (Phase I)).
