> DESCRIPTION
Triple Base’s underground project space features a multi-channel video installation by Elyse Mallouk. Diamonds drip from the rafters and the cracks in the walls, filling the gallery basement and accumulating in a stack of editioned prints, free to take. Gemstones are powerful symbols of love, desire, and seduction. Like art objects, they are culled from raw material, polished, and invested with symbolic significance and sentiment. They outlive their original owners and their first meanings, transformed each time they change hands. In this projection, the diamonds seeping from the gallery walls allude to the connections between desire, value, and art. Mallouk is currently pursuing a dual MFA/MA in Fine Arts and Visual and Critical Studies at California College of the Arts.
