A Raising
close
< >

A Raising is an 11-channel audio installation juxtaposing the idiosyncratic lives and work of Mark de Jong and Chris Larson. The artists’ work is currently, and purposefully, paired alongside one another at the Contemporary Arts Center; by employing the architecture of their personal pasts, A Raising seeks to magnify the unique moments connecting their lives. From Larson’s Minnesotan ancestors building their prairie homestead to de Jong’s Dutch family immigrating to Cincinnati, A Raising spans over 160 years. Historical scenes are collected and compiled and layered atop of one another, condensing time into one singular moment.
