CONNERSMITH. is also pleased to present Coble/Riley Projects' second exhibition with the gallery. Since 2009, Mary Coble (USA/DK) and Blithe Riley (USA) have collaborated on performance-based videos that explore tensions between site-specificity, gesture, narrative, and endurance. In February 2012, Coble/Riley Projects was invited to participate in a month-long Iaspis Residency in Umeň, Sweden. Working on a frozen stretch of sea, Coble and Riley fused video, performance and land art to create "Watermarks." Dense snow conceals the frozen seascape underneath, acting as a canvas on which the artists make marks and draw. Opaqueness and transparency arise from the simple actions of an unknown figure, who repeatedly uncovers layers of snow, ice, and water to reveal surfaces with varied properties of reflection.

There will be an opening night reception at CONNERSMITH. on Saturday, February 9th from 6 - 8pm.
