Artist Peter Bruun will talk about his recent body of work, Bibliography, a state-of-the-art online exhibition in which Bruun shares his journey in search for healing after his daughter’s death by overdose. In a series of drawings and video montages that incorporate texts by writers and are accompanied by music composed by friends in response to the artwork, Bruun comes to terms with loss and grief.
Bibliography’s braiding of art, words and music conjures an emotional landscape we’re all part of by virtue of being human. With this exhibition, Peter reminds us that no matter how isolated we feel, intimate conversation with art (and each other) can sustain us.
This event is organized by Colby College’s Department of Art, with additional support from the Arts Office, the Department of English and Creative Writing Program, and the Music Department.
