Night Watch by Lilli Carre

A still image from Lilli Carre's animated exhibit, Night Watch. The exhibit will run from October 25 through November 17 in Elder Gallery.

The work of Chicago artist Lilli Carréwill be featured in the new Elder Gallery exhibit, Night Watch.

In this exhibition, Carré created new bodies of animated and sculptural works that center on themes of privacy, voyeurism and personal space in relation to architecture. The animated work takes the form of a five-channel video installation depicting partially occluded windows and a projected animation exploring different angles of a private room. The sculptures around the space are a series of ceramic tablets and abstracted household forms all pulled from the digital imagery of the animations into the physical space of the gallery. 

Carré is a contemporary artist, filmmaker and cartoonist originally from Los Angeles, Calif. She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The exhibit runs October 25 through November 17 in Elder Gallery, located inside the Rogers Center for Fine Arts at 50thStreet and Huntington Ave. An opening reception will be held on Friday, October 25 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Elder Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. The gallery is closed on Monday. It is free and open to the public.
