Categories:

Shooting Gallery Project Space is pleased to present the new work of artist, Christopher Burch, in his latest exhibition titled Oh Ye Of Little Faith: The Legend of Preacher Pinetar, an exhibition of new mixed media works, reassembled found objects and a large scale narrative mural. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 13 from 7 pm to 11 pm. The exhibit will be on view through October 4, 2014 and is free and open to the public.


Oh Ye Of Little Faith, will be Burch's third installment of his ever evolving graphic narrative, The Missed Adventures of Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Death in the Land of Shadows. In this project, the trickster archetype is championed as an embodiment of ambiguity and ambivalence, calling into question fundamental assumptions about the way the world is organized and, at times, offering new ways of transforming it. Acting as the shadow, brother, teacher, and enemy and ally of the historical southern trickster figure of Br'er Rabbit, Burch's own character Br'er Death, reveals that the trickster's antics are never comedic, but rather serious gestures of resistance within a hostile environment. Burch not only re-contextualizes, but also remixes the Br'er Rabbit folklore with his own afro-surreal aesthetics.
