Liza Ryan: SPILL

Reed College, Cooley Gallery (map) Southeast
Feb. 24-March 8 2009

In one corner of Liza Ryan's installation of new work at Reed's Cooley Gallery, the Los Angeles-based artist presents a silent, two-channel video called "Sight Unseen." On the left, the camera follows a falcon in flight, as it swoops and soars above fields, occasionally disappearing behind trees. On the right, the camera tracks a woman jogging across a dry field, continually looking upward at the bird's powerful maneuvering. Certainly, the bird as a figure of transcendence is a familiar trope, but "Sight Unseen" implies that, for Ryan, it's hardly an uncomplicated symbol of hope. JM
