UTA MOONEY & GLENN STENSON - PENETRALIA


Penetralia
plural noun
The innermost parts of a building; a secret or hidden place.

Autobiographical memories fade if not supported and nourished by contact with other people. Through storytelling, the sharing of experiences and emotions merge our memories with the recollections of others.

Penetralia is a collaborative exhibition by artist Uta Mooney and author Glenn Stenson, who, through their individual genres, share their memories and imagination. Through paintings, symbolic imagery and installations mingled with the written word, they explore those nostalgic places upon which one can never return. Combining these two genres the artists invite viewers to explore a new realm of ideas and hopefully discover a delight in remembering their own stories too.
