i have to be a lonely warrior,tonight

2018

An arrangement of audiovisual projections and sculptural objects in a conversation about health, perception, and psycho-spatial relationships.

"Gabrielle's exhibition in the Lucas Gallery, an installation of animation, video, and sculpture, invoked an administrative aesthetic — the environment of insurance offices, waiting rooms, billing, paperwork. Her video and animation work addressed the playful physical world outside the restraints of administration, and explored the difference between the reality of the medical industry and the imagination of good health."

In mid-March, I was briefly radioactive and spent two days in quarantine. My senior thesis show at Princeton University, i have to be a lonely warrior,tonight, grew out of this experience, and into its final form I accidentally poured all my most persistent anxieties.
