James Gero's video of the opening of the Crackle & Drag exhibit at the BCA Center in Burlington. Taken from the final line of Sylvia Plath’s 1963 poem Edge, Crackle & Drag is a haunting portrait of the artist’s mother. Through the continual reinstallation of his photo-based work, sculptural objects and moving images, Ericsson is involved in an ongoing investigation and reinterpretation of a deteriorating archive of personal artifacts. Crackle and Drag makes public a personal struggle to come to terms with the archive’s power to determine the past, even as it vanishes in time.
