Day & Night Projects is pleased to present Atlanta artist Ellie Dent’s latest exhibition, Subject & Subjected.

Subject & Subjected focuses on the relationship between doctor and patient, engaging viewers with painting, sculpture, and participatory installation.

Dent’s embroidery and beadwork on gently used hospital gowns pinpoints and comforts evidence of trauma. Lush miniature paintings of endoscopies are viewable though a magnifying device of the artist’s design. These and other artworks impart a simultaneous presence and absence of the human body, raising conversations about mortality, trauma, and control.

Subject & Subjected will be on view at Day & Night Projects from September 6 through 29. Gallery hours are 12–5pm Fridays and Saturdays, or by appointment.
