That Which Eats Us Makes Us Stronger: 6X6 Consumption

Why do birds suddenly appear every time trash is near? When we are consumed with an idea, are we still ourselves, or have we become that which is eating us? Eat like a bird and consume half your weight in art and ideas on Wednesday night, November 3rd, from 7-8 pm, when 6X6 Student Prize Winner Lindsey Klonoski scatters the bread on the waters at Ciné Lab with her selections, including works by 6X6 interns Paige Mostowy and Ted Kuhn, Jimmy DeRoth (Athens), Ash Sechler (New York by way of Athens), Tom Ketteringham (Bristol, England), and Jennie Thwing (Glassboro, NJ).

About The Curator: Lindsey Klonoski is a multimedia video artist in Athens, Georgia. Winner of the 6X6 UGA Student Prize earlier this year, she is in her fourth year of study at the University of Georgia earning a BFA in Digital Media. Klonoski grew up on Saint Simons Island, a small town on the easternmost coast of Georgia. Her art is driven by the nostalgia of this town, specifically the juxtaposition of its beauty and inviting appearance against the deeper layers of heartache, mystery, and mysticism that resonate in the rural south. Her work explores human nature and emotions, seeking to understand the disconnection between the two; simultaneously invoking lust and discomfort, confusion and enticement.
