Carlos and Jason Sanchez are well known for
creating noir-
tinged
images evoking distress, uncertainty and,
occasionally, even
horror.
In Between Life and Death, they’ve created the
scene of a
bus
accident in which a passenger’s near-death
experience is
projected
within a crashed passenger transport bus as a
hologram.
The holographic technology used in this installation
allows
viewers to achieve a unique intimacy with a near-
death
experience. The haunting installation experience is
further
intensified by a looped soundtrack created by artist
Tim
Hecker. Based on several true accounts, this
project seeks
to create an honest depiction of a sacred moment
in which
life and death are a breath apart. The result is a
work that
truly needs to be seen – and heard – to be
believed.
Artists talk on-site May 5. This installation is
accompanied by an exhibition of the Sanchezes’
photographs
at
Christopher Cutts Gallery.
