“Ritual of Waters” – Solo Exhibit by Rodney Ewing -

January 12 through March 1, 2013
Reception: Saturday, January 12  6pm- 10pm
Closing: Friday, March 1st,  7pm- 9pm

IcTus Gallery is pleased to announce the “Rituals of Water,” a solo exhibition of the works of Rodney Ewing, curated  by Hanna Regev and Katya Min, Gallery Director.

In “Rituals of Water”, Ewing examines the role of water as an allegorical agent of disruption and change in the history of people of African descent. Water as motif figures greatly in the African Diaspora, in the wake of experiences that include abductions, transport onto slave ships, and immersion into an alien culture via baptism that removes traces of past beliefs and traditions. Water has also served as a weapon to scatter activists during the Civil Rights Movement, and as a reckoning and catastrophe for the mostly poor and African American communities of New Orleans living on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River during Hurricane Katrina.

Ewing renders the centuries long sweep of this historical timeline of water and the African Diaspora. Large-scale drawing and installations are captured in four thematic sections: Transition (Middle Passage), Transformation (Baptism), Resistance (Civil Rights Movement), and Dispersal (Hurricane Katrina). With this construct, Ewing has produced a record of how even a basic, mundane element is transformed by a people’s history into a transcendent and at times malevolent force.
