Jennie Thwing’s video installation,“My Black Hole,” is an animated portrait of the evolution of her studio practice, highlighting the dichotomy of the artist's joy and sadness after completing a body of work. It takes place inside a constructed room over four weeks and was created as a model for an upcoming film series titled “The Living Room.” Thwing, a New York-based artist and filmmaker, is originally from Johnstown, PA.
My Black Hole is part of an ongoing collaboration – which began in 2008 – between PCA and Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA). This exchange of exhibits provides a larger context and more exposure for regional artists, and it strengthens the artistic dialogue between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
