Exhibition: Survival Blanket by Connor Kirk

"Survival Blanket” is the first solo exhibition of designer and contemporary artist Connor Kirk.
"I want to reveal myself through my work just as much as I want to conceal myself."" says Kirk of this body of work. With a survival blanket as his flag, Kirk presents an autobiographical spectrum of contradictory tendencies. A survival blanket, also sometimes called a space blanket, is an aluminum coated sheet that is often used to aid victims of disasters, accidents, or other survival situations. The wearer's surroundings are reflected on its metallic surface while also creating a barrier from the elements. Precariously balancing on the edge of transparent and opaque, the work in Survival Blanket projects the state of an artist stuck in between two worlds.

Connor Kirk is an American contemporary artist from Woodstock, Georgia. He learned printmaking studio practices at the Savannah College of Art and Design from 2007 to 2011. After art school Connor traveled to Kyoto to continue his training as a printmaker. There he found a way of life that was in many ways challenging, and in other ways comforting. Kyoto is now home to Connor, for now.

Exhibition Period: 9/30-10/10 (Weekdays 13:00-20:00, Weekends/Holidays 12:30- 20:00)
