And if they could talk to one another, don’t you think they’d suppose that the names they used applied to the things they see

Christopher Henry Gallery is delighted to announce the collaboration of artists Gregory Kaplowitz and Inbred Hybrid Collective with “Tesseract”

Taking Plato’s Allegory of the Cave as its inspiration, Tesseract is a video exhibit dedicated to exploring the quantum of liminality in what is commonly considered a dichotomy: reality and illusion. Filling the upper floor of the gallery, a circular room sits in darkness, casting a dim glow against the back wall. Entering this room through a small opening, the viewer is confronted with an ever-shifting play of flickering tone and rhythm, generated from a rotating crystalline fire at the center. This imagery plays against the circular walls of the room itself, before refolding upon the center, implicating the viewer in a choice between what constitutes the reality, and what is the illusion.

Tesseract questions the vantage from which reality is established, and offers a unique perspective on perception itself, bringing seemingly disparate elements (quantum physics, mysticism, and sensory stimulus) into a cohesive poly-dimensional whole.
