"Glass Case" Exhibition at Lyndon House Arts Center

Friday, February 7, 2020


Glass Case at Lyndon House Arts Center


(ATHENS, GA) Lyndon House Arts Center introduces Glass Case, featuring small objects and sculpture by Athens based artists. The debut installation is by Elinor Saragoussi and will be on view February 7 - April 30, 2020. Glass Case exhibits will rotate quarterly.


"Dioramas have always been a source of inspiration. Visiting the taxidermy animals displayed in their painted environments in a natural history museum, has been a highlight. So, having the opportunity to build a tiny world within a contained, diorama-like space was a treat and pushed me to explore different techniques and work with new materials..Utilizing hand cut figures from a music video set I designed for my band Baby Tony and The Teenies, I constructed a whole new world for the figures to reside in. With this installation, I hope to give viewers a chance to immerse themselves in a whimsical place full of quirky characters and join me in leaving behind this reality if only for a moment. To complement the installation, my partner Max Boyd has created a soundscape called “Immaterial Gold” which can be accessed by scanning the QR code on the glass. To become fully absorbed into this little world, give it a listen!” - Elinor Saragoussi


Elinor Saragoussi, from Denver, Colorado, is currently based in Athens, GA. She works with a variety of media, including felt, set design/installation and illustration to create fantastical, colorful works. Elinor has a biology degree from the University of Colorado, and is also a musician who sings and plays bass in her band Baby Tony and The Teenies.
