GO NORTH is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of
Sonia and Dakin Roy’s show “Memento Mori”. The exhibition runs from April 7th
through April 29th, 2007. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday,
April 7th, 6 - 9 pm. In Memento Mori, Sonia and Dakin Roy explore issues of
mortality and the way various people from different backgrounds, ethnicities,
religions, and demographics deal with death. Through photographs and works on
paper, the Roy’s have taken pieces of the past and combined them with the
present. Creating new memories and homage’s out of the remnants of those who
have come before us. To re-examine, and re-define what it is to be alive and how
we choose to remember those that are gone. Sonia and Dakin Roy live and work in
Beacon, NY.
