Mohamad Kannan -White Mornings
"Sound and Fury” opens on September 12th at the Chandler Center for the Arts and runs through November 8th. This thought provoking exhibition explores themes centered on the meaning of life and death. The title of the show comes from the famous soliloquy in the fifth act of Shakespeare's Macbeth. In the context of the play, Macbeth reaches profound conclusions on the meaning, or perhaps meaninglessness, of life. His bleak outlook is neither accepted nor rejected by the artists included, rather they grapple with fundamental questions of human existence from their own perspectives. This ambitious group show attempts to answer the unanswerable questions:
What is the substance of humanity?
How does one endure the passing of time?
When we leave, what do we leave behind?
Through their various mediums, the artists masterfully navigate these themes. While they and the viewer may not reach the meaning of life, they may find new meaning in the source text, turning away from Macbeth's conclusion that life is merely "sound and fury, signifying nothing."
Opening reception from 6-8pm on September 12th.
