Ashley Ford: Metrouroboros.
From Jul 9 through 22, 2011.
University of Miami presents the Master of Fine Arts exhibition by Ashley Ford on view beginning July 9, 2011. Metrouroboros is the examination of the contemporary non-place.
The term, “non-place” as coined by French anthropologist Marc Augé, indicates a kind of place that has a sense of liminality. These are spaces that are common to our everyday lives, that we pass through with frequency yet don’t hold enough significance to be regarded as places – highways, public restrooms, airports. Metrouroboros examines the psychological and sociological impact of these places and the interactions we have within them.
Ashley Ford has been exhibiting work in print, photography, drawing and bookbinding since 2001. She received her B.F.A with Honors in Studio Art as well as a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Central Florida. Because of this combination of interests, her work often has heavy psychological and anthropological themes. She has proudly exhibited her prints and books across the country and has been collected by the Miami Dade Public Library System as well as The W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library, The University of Alabama Libraries.
