light as a feather

light as a feather

Day & Night Projects is pleased to present light as a feather: a 72-hour installation by artist Candice Greathouse. Sealed in the gallery, an installation of wind and feathers will be viewable only through our wall of windows.

light as a feather is a nostalgic exploration of a playful childhood game—interpreted literally and in all seriousness. This is the newest work in a series of performative and experiential installations exploring desire, fantasy, and reality. Through her interdisciplinary practice, Greathouse creates atmospheric environments anchored in personal and collective experience. Exploiting the memories and emotions of fleeting pinnacle events—parties, celebrations, holidays—she reinterprets and manifests the “magic of the moment” outside of its original context.

This will be the last solo exhibition of Candice Greathouse’s work in Atlanta before she moves to Los Angeles, where she has recently accepted an Assistant Professor of Photography position at California State University, Northridge.

light as a feather will be on view at Day & Night Projects for ONLY 72 HOURS: from Thursday, May 17th at 7pm through 7pm on Sunday, May 20th. Walk-in gallery hours are 12–5pm daily—or call to set up an appointment: 404-623-7289.

The opening reception coincides with Day & Night Projects’ first-ever fundraiser, and will feature a karaoke battle after 9pm.
