The Back Room of the Main Gallery will showcase a solo installation by Trisha Kyner called Riding Long Dead Horses. There will be three half-sized figures astride an empty saddle, looking off into the distance. “I wanted them marked by the land, the journey. I was thinking about my own family myths, the grain of truth and toughness, as well as how false pride and privilege had shaped our stories. I was thinking about escapes and reinventions, but I also wanted to engage in a bit of mockery and re-evaluation of myth.”
