Los Angeles-based artist Amanda Ross-Ho presents a new exhibition for the Dodd Galleries comprised of video, sculpture and textiles. Continuing her ongoing interest in the recursive ecologies of observed phenomena, sites of production, and individual versus collective experience, THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY combines amplified forms into a theatrical tableau.
Borrowing from the language of news reportage, the works in the exhibition chronicle part of a suburban ritual that took place on a singular evening in Northern California, but could easily act as an analog to the precariousness of our contemporary global condition. Entwining various currencies of the liminal, fractured narrative ultimately serves as both the subject and the structure of the work. And as the title acutely suggests, the exhibition aims to deliver a message that is both urgent and uncertain.
