Flurrying Pheremones: An Installation by Suzan Shutan
Through Jan. 16, 2010.
Opening reception, Wed., Dec. 2, 5:30—7 p.m.

Press release

Suzan Shutan's temporal installations consist of delicate compositional illusions that challenge viewer perception. Shutan's work has been included in numerous prestigious collections and she has participated in international and regional exhibitions for three decades.

Suzan Shutan:

Flurrying Pheromones is about sexual attraction as communicative behavior. It represents forces of nature and life processes that are unseen but felt as subjective universes. The compelling mystery of airborne chemo-signals... a spray, a flutter, a blast... make us receptors of sexual attraction. Flurrying Pheromones tries to illustrate this idea, evoke its essence and remake it into something uncommon and transformative.
The Niche is located on the first floor of Founders Hall and open: Mondays through Thursdays 8:30 a.m.—6 p.m., Fridays & Saturdays 8:30 a.m.—4 p.m.
