Seven years after his brain cancer diagnosis, Dennis Svoronos remains surprisingly alive. In his latest exhibition ‘Grey Matters’, Svoronos ponders the problems he and others face being among the masses of life-long patients. Through interactive and kinetic work, he conveys the horror and humor of the place between chronically ill and unexpectedly well.
To these ends, Svoronos has made work with thousands of replicated medications, created eerie animatronics and utilizes brain-scanning technology in his own device called an MRI (Mind Reactive Instrument). As a patient himself, Svoronos uses his work to create a safe space to discuss and debate issues affecting our most vulnerable.
The final day of the exhibition will be marked with a closing concert by renowned Boston composer John Murphree, who has created the performance in response to Svoronos’ body of work. (go to www.jmurphree.com for details)
Eric Sealine’s exhibition “Seven Studios: A memoir” will be on view concurrently.
