Black Ball Projects is pleased to announced MTN, a four person show revolving around a single idea: mountain. Literally and figuratively, the mountain is a place where we act out our mythologies. Either as a symbol or as an actual place, it often serves as that distant frontier and a stark contrast from the civilized lowlands. Our heroes run there to start anew, seeking glory or redemption while our villains may too reside there building strength in war-torn mountain caves. In that respect, the mountain can also be a place of suspicion and a site of unknown horrors. This invokes notions of the romantic and the sublime laid out by 18th century British and German philosophers (often drawing upon mountain filled nature), which is still an effective philosophical lens by which beauty, experience, and aspects of the known and the unknown can be viewed. The work in this show, a collection of photography, printmaking, drawing and sculpture, each use the mountain as a subject of play, creating unique viewpoints of how this mystique can be generated and/or subverted.
