“Domestic Reliquary,” a photographic art show featuring work by Daniel W. Coburn, opens today at the 5G Gallery at 1715 Fifth Street N.W. The show runs through Feb. 26. A reception for the show is held at the gallery tonight at 8 p.m.
Today’s Exposing the Occult features work from Coburn’s show. Coburn is a graduate student at UNM working toward a Master of Fine Arts in photography. His work is held in many public and private collections including the Mulvane Art Museum, the Albrecht-Kemper and The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. Coburn says his artistic body of work “revolves around dark family narratives, gender, suicide and domestic trauma.” The show at 5G contains 24 pieces created through the antiquated salted paper and darkroom process combined with various digital elements. “Domestic Reliquary” uses found images that are meant to supplement Coburn’s own family album and help serve as a “one-of-a-kind” domestic artifact.
