The Power of Dreams: Workshop and Discussion with Virginia Lee Montgomery and Rodney Waters
Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020 – Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020
01:00 PM – 03:00 PM
Join Lawndale and exhibiting artist Virginia Lee Montgomery for The Power of Dreams. VLM will be in conversation with Rodney Waters, a Jungian analyst in training at the International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland, about disaster behavioral health post-Harvey and dream symbology. This workshop aims to provide attendees with a constructive Jungian toolbox to analyze their own inner dream-life.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
VLM (b. 1986; Houston, TX, USA) is a filmmaker, sculptor, and facilitator. She received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and her MFA from Yale University in Sculpture in 2016. Working across video, performance, sound, and sculpture, her artwork is a research practice of metaphysics. Its content is surreal, latently autobiographical, and often with a feminist impulse. The work is paradoxically cryptic and literal, conceptual and hand-built, digital and physical. While her artwork shifts in subject matter from syrups to storms to stones, VLM deploys an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary of repeating gestures like drilling, dousing, or reaching and recursive symbols like circles, spirals, spheres, and holes. Her movements interrogate the complex relationship between physical and psychic structures—revealing matters of being, knowing, identity, action, space, and time. VLM also works as a professional mind-map scribe, a Graphic Facilitator.
