“Cocotte” by Russell Chartier for the #MNMF2018
Created with Paul J. Botelho, “Cocotte” explores the fabric of memory through multilayered video and audio. The work develops the metaphor of an ocean of memories where fragments of childhood, love, and loss are intermingled together weaving a complex tapestry forged from the moments that make up our lives. The piece examines the transmutation of time and cyclic nature of the human condition through a portrayal of the multilayer.
As part of the Curatorial Program #3, “Cocotte”, by Russell Chartier will be at the following venues:

Concrete Space (Miami, Nov. 10-Jan. 15)
