whitespec at whitespace presents (sub)Urban Ghosts

May 27 – June 25, 2011

Opening Reception: Friday, May 27 | 7 – 10 pm

Whitespec at whitespace is pleased to present (sub)Urban Ghosts. In this body of work, Lowe explores the themes of rapid technology, growing urbanism and the constant alterations to our natural environment through human interaction. The installation, video and photo documentation capture the movements of the subversive animals we live amongst as we continue to develop our natural landscape. By using vintage televisions as a significant part of her installation, she implies that our outward movement as humans is not dissimilar to the movements of technology and nature. Through her work she advocates a way for the two to exist in conjunction with each other. Lowe encourages people to question the ways in which we move between technology and nature, urbanism and nature, our bodies and the land we live on.

Hailey Lowe was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. She attended school at the University of Colorado where she received her BFA in creative advertising with a focus in art history and studio arts as well as Technology, Arts and Media Studies certificate. Lowe will graduate top of her class in June as the Excelsus Laureate with her MFA in Sculpture from Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. With a focus on installation, performance and video documentation art, her influences come from nature, history and our human relations with the environment.
