Breaking it down.
Living Arts of Tulsa continues it’s month-long look at the art of John C. Kelley with the video exhibit Harmless. Described as a “suite of short, looping films” dissecting the structure of narrative storytelling, the casual passerby might take Harmless for a series of excerpts from a horror flick. That’s because Kelley, who teaches art at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Ark., explores through those devices familiar to fans of suspense. Yet, it’s up to observers to search out the paths Kelley sets down and find their own conclusions in the mix of sound and images – even when what you think is about to happen never does. On another level, what you think could happen just may say something about you. Harmless continues at Living Arts of Tulsa, 307 E. Brady St., through Aug. 28. For more, visit www.livingarts.org.
