what opens—like a blaze of fire is a collaboration between Charles Matson Lume and poets Joyce Sutphen (Minnesota’s second Poet Laureate) and Galilee Peaches (interdisciplinary artist). Layered with themes such as the body, relationships, transitions and what it means to be “open”—to discovery, to change, to understanding the complexities of this world—Lume’s site-specific light installations rely on everyday objects and architecture to reflect and expand upon the poetry, and vice versa. This show is accompanied by a book created by the three artists, effectively intertwining visual art and the written word in the gallery space.
