Death and resurrection are the themes in “TUMULUS,” the newest exhibit at the EMERGEncy Room Gallery at Rice University. (The exhibition space focuses on emerging artists, hence its name.) The three-part installation by Houston-based artist Emily Link showcases her soft sculptures, which she describes as 3-D fabric drawings.
One segment of the installation shows a tumulus, or burial, mound; rising up from it is a disembodied head made of felt, with purple hair, fangs and two forked tongues. The same character is seen again in the other two segments, in various stages of resurrection. There’s an opening reception at 8:30 p.m. April 19. Regular viewing hours are 5 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, and by appointment. Through May 13. 6100 Main. For information, call 713‑348‑4234 or visit www.studioart.rice.edu.
Thursdays, Saturdays. Starts: April 19. Continues through May 13, 2012
