Description

The Phipps Center for the Arts will exhibit:
What Remains…
Mixed Media Sculpture by Denise Rouleau and Mark D. Roberts

Whether or not their preservation occurred through an extraordinary set of natural circumstances or in accordance to some ancient rite, we view mummies in a curious way. They are repugnant and at the same time captivating. We are in awe of them, but perhaps do not envy them. We want to uncover their secrets, but as we search for answers among the bones and artifacts we have to ask ourselves who we are and how will we be remembered.

This body of work is part of an ongoing collaborative series originally titled “Art of the Catacomb.”  The framework for the catacombs consists mainly of vintage type-face cases that are disassembled and reworked into unique pieces of architecture to house the mummy-like figures.

In response to what is the meaning behind the work, it is best described as a collection of stories that prompt questions about life, death, and human nature.
