Opening September 9 in the project room, Carrie Secrist Gallery is pleased to present a two-channel video installation by Todd Mattei titled Healing (2011). Using fragmentary images of lighting fixtures, the piece explores the body’s relationship to time and ritual. With the work Mattei creates a mythology of the circuit, the respiratory system, and lightness.
Todd Mattei received his MFA from the University of Illinois-Chicago in 2005. A musician in litesalive, Joan of Arc, and Male, among other groups, Mattei has exhibited nationally at the Milwaukee Art Museum; Filmmakers Gallery, Pittsburgh, and Publico, Cincinnati. He has shown at Gallery 400, the Green Lantern Gallery, and Heaven in Chicago.
