Tragédie / June 04 – 26 / Beep Beep Gallery

We are all raised on very specific types of stories. Those of heroism and triumph, those of valor and beauty. Fortitude, honor, perseverance, love. Stories to bolster our passion and enrich our spirit, told to inspire and uplift. Tales that, through their fantasy, inevitably become improbable ideals and impractical touchstones. Rare standards when compared to truth. Instead, we have exchanged knights in shining armor for Apocalyptic horsemen, fair princess-maidens for damaged harlots, and magical kingdoms for flooded cities. Happy endings for sad realities.

"Tragédie" explores stories of melancholy. Inspired by history and fiction, Louis N LaPierre and Sanithna Phansavanh reinterpret narratives through drawings and paintings.

The opening reception will be on June 04, 7 to 10pm, at Beep Beep Gallery, one of Atlanta's most beloved independent spaces.

Sneak-peeks and process shots of the show can be viewed here and at the show's Tumblr.
