EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS TRUE THRU JULY 25

KimConvery-Web-Banner

OPENING MAY 29 from 5-8PM
SHOWING THROUGH JULY 25

A series of investigations with drawings, writings, and three-dimensional forms of how the images and assumed narratives of drawings can fall together into a whole new form of truth. Join us in welcoming Kimberly Convery for her 2nd exhibition, this time solo, at Engine.

Artist Statement

The drawings are mixing soft subtle skies with glass buildings and implied landscapes. Interrupting this dream like world gems or sharp shapes shift through with no explanation. The incorporation of all of these subtle symbols blend together to create a familiar comfortable space, which isn’t necessarily questioned. The new combination of this time and space becomes a new truth. The comparison of color, unexplained spatial relations and objects that are adored create new truths when placed in a narrative that is left to be discovered. The combination of things can be organized in the brain by lots of different learned behaviors, tastes and categories that were taught over the years. This accumulation and assimilation into image making makes all of these things that I›ve assumed to be true a new truth. Even things that I know to be a lie or not real are also a truth, the very concept of knowing something creates a path of truth. The enjoyment of the thought “Everything You Know is True” has inspired me to extend this conversation and invite artist that I find extremely respectable and insightful in their own work to respond in a short writing about their understanding or argument against this phrase. As I am not the first to question this, I hope this show provokes a sort of new perspective on trusting your inquisitive reaction to making and viewing and noticing the new truth that is being mixed into your own truths.

ENGINE HOSTS PROJECT AWARE SUMMER FILM INSTITUTE

ProjectAwareWebBanner

Project AWARE presents 7th Summer Film Institute August 17 − 21 from 9 − 5 each day; possibility of one extra day on Saturday the 22nd

Project AWARE began in 2003 with a goal to raise awareness about youth prescription drug abuse. The co-founders, Katey Branch and Carl Lakari, believed that if young people took the lead in creating presentations about the issue it would open more eyes and ultimately be more effective. Youth Empowerment Workshops were developed as a main program. This simple effective approach for empowering young people to make a difference became the primary tool to create powerful presentations. Young people would be supported in creating presentations and then take their message out to other youth or adults. Using this model, Project AWARE reached thousands of people with a message about youth prescription drug abuse.

Production by filmmaker Amy Grumbling and Michael D’Apice, University of New England.

Coordination and facilitation by Carl Lakari of Project AWARE and Rachael Silvano of Youth MOVE Maine. Engine will provide space and media lab for editing, as well as some facilitation.

The institute will be able to accommodate up to 20 youth with at least 50% from Biddeford. The young filmmakers will produce three 30 second PSAs on resiliency; a 15-minute short movie produced about Biddeford and Biddeford issues with the story and script to be developed by Biddeford youth prior to week long program.

Cost for the week is typically set at $495 per attendee. Payment plans and scholarships may be available so don’t hesitate to ask; this is a day program only but we can often help with finding accommodations.

INTRICATE WORLDS MAY 1 THROUGH MAY 23

INTRICATE WORLDS WEB BANNER

INTRICATE WORLDS will run May 1st, 2015 until May 23rd, 2015 with an opening reception Saturday May 2nd 5-7pm. Twelve artists–emerging to those with regional and national reputations–were selected by curator and artist Stephen Burt. Artists include Stephen Burt, Kimberly Convery, Fritz Drury, Rachael Eastman, Yizhak Elyashiv, Lauren Fensterstock, Sarah Gorham, Alison Hildreth, Ellie Hollinshead, Jon Langford, Mike Libby, Carrie Scanga, and Wendy Seller

Curatorial Statement:

Artworks are reliquaries of memory, time and experience. This exhibition is composed of art that I find compelling for its obsessive attention to detail and pictorial structure. In these works narrative abounds-through what is pictured and the process by which the images are made. Images make visible the thoughts, dreams, and desires of the artist and in the best of circumstances draw out in the viewer a sympathetic/empathetic response. Analogy is prevalent here and rich symbolism. If the viewer of this exhibition takes time to look carefully, the reward will be an immersion into other worlds, that just may surprise and intrigue with possibility and depth. –Stephen Burt
