Catherine et André Hug Gallery presents Kourtney Roy’s third solo exhibition. Sorry, The work continues to use Kourtney Roy’s own image as protagonist in a world where external reality is ripe with strange and mysterious juxtapositions and scenarios.
In Sorry, No Vacancy, the artist has melded the ineffable with the vast and isolated spaces of Southwest Texas. The settings for this series are marginal and transient sites; remote highways, abandoned tourist stops, and lonesome towns that seem to hover over the landscape as ghost images of a past time. These sites become the grounds where Roy performs her cryptic rituals of self-transformation. No Vacancy reveals a parallel universe where the realm of the imaginary spreads itself as a fine netting over the peripheral world.
