> DESCRIPTION

In keeping with Kelly Richardson\'s interest in the language of cinema and science fiction, her latest video installation and large-scale photograpic work Orion Tide features a desert landscape at night with what appears to be numerous spacecraft or vessels leaving planet earth. Their sheer number suggests that this might be a forced exodus from a place that has become barren, at a juncture in the distant future. Or is it the onset of space exploration on a grand scale?

Orion Tide premieres at Birch Libralato in parallel with Kelly Richardson\'s 15 year retrospective at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo.
