This event has ended.

A.I.R. Gallery presents Under Story, an exhibition of new works by Barbara Roux.

Under Story is an installation of color photographs, sculpture, and an accompanying narrative text based on Roux’s longtime engagement with wild habitat niches in the suburbs of New York City. An environmental artist and activist, Roux is a witness to change, struggle, and resilience in the natural landscapes on a daily basis.

Under Story focuses on a small area of woods that has survived despite frequent human disruption. Roux’s color photographs picture small moments in this uninviting environment and often documents personal rituals she performs at the site. A wall-based assemblage of branch and twig elements, made of clay and wood, creates mysterious forms and shadows that emerge from the gallery walls. Roux’s poetic narrative text grafts the natural, archeological, and mythic histories of this neglected site together.

A spiral bound artist’s book, Under Story, accompanies this exhibition.
