Unheimlich
Collaborative and solo works by Elizabeth McDonald Schwaiger and Seth Orion Schwaiger

at Anthem Gallery – Blue Star Arts Complex

At the crux of both artists’ practices are dynamics of power, both subtle and overt. Working collaboratively, the subject becomes much more specific — the dynamics of power is they play out in the home, or rather, the home’s role in building personal power and deflecting external pressures. “Unheimlich” is a distortion and reimagining of “you i i i everything else,” the couple’s first entirely collaborative exhibition. Here the Austin bungalow-based De Stijl Gallery was transformed back into a residence-like space complete with sculpture/dining table installation/bedroom, painted digital fireplace, and artist chandelier.
