Catch Me If You Can

The first known computer virus was called The Creeper and would display this message on computers screens: "I'm The Creeper: Catch me if you can.”  Black Iris presents CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, a show that brings together works from two artists and two collectives that explore the darker side of the creative impulse.  Through these four works we see an investigation into the history of creative warfare, both cultural and biological, as well as attempts to excavate humanity in catastrophe.  They do so by using catastrophe as their canvas, disaster as their form - a world to dwell in and dwell upon - reaching out to provoke thought, action or empathy. 

Featuring works by: ChannelTwo, Frank Heath, Phillip Stearns and Bob Paris + Jeff Lassahn (The Cluster Project)
