Constant World: The Work of Jennifer and Kevin McCoy includes work from the past three years that continues the artists’ interest in sculpture, cinema, memory, and technology.
There is no single reality in the McCoy’s work: they present us with multiple realities through constantly shifting stories and perspectives. In their own unique combination of sculpture and video, small cameras project an open-ended narrative of live images filmed directly from the constructed models. The viewer physically navigates between the sculptures and the projections to experience a more associative form of story telling that is both actual and virtual.
Their work presents a world that is a continual overlay of individual memories and experiences taking place against a shared background of movies, news and technologies; histories, myths and rumors in unending circulation. For the McCoys, this world of changing, evolving and accumulating perspectives is always around us. It is us. It is the Constant World.
The exhibition was curated by Dave Familian and organized by the Beall Center for Art and Technology, University of California, Irvine.
