Erin Miller presents her MFA Thesis Exhibition, Stunt Double, at Bibliowicz Gallery in Ithaca, New York. This body of work responds to notions of theatrical production through material exploration and improvisational staging, where elements of chance are welcomed and celebrated. Methods of printmaking, textile dyeing, painting, and object making are choreographed to direct viewers through a combined subtle and pattern-heavy space, where abstracted representations of spotlights, curtains, and stages present themselves repeatedly. The work doubles itself, shifting forms as the exhibition develops. Stunt Double serves as a window into the world of materiality, where fact and fiction overlap and where the symbiotic relationship between the stage and the audience are challenged.
