Visual Studies graduate student Tess LiVolsi Amoruso will present her thesis exhibition any space, any place virtual pilgrimage at The Visual Arts Center in Portsmouth, May 7 – June 23, 2011. A reception will be held on Friday, June 3 at 7:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
LiVolsi Amoruso uses photography, mixed media and video to document her recent pilgrimage to one of India’s most sacred sites, the hill Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. Epic landscapes, indigenous people and sacred animals are frequent subjects in this thematic exhibit. By using native sounds, contemplative space, lightly fragranced incense and randomly placed psycholinguistics, LiVolsi Amoruso heightens the awareness of the experience for viewers.
