Arthur’s projects seek to interrogate systems of power.
Her impulse is to the center of the tensions, to the very epicenter of the push and pull of human frailty. Our impossible foibles are chronicled in elegant and sparse vignettes that capture the moment at which we could either teeter forward or draw back. We are with her at the cliffside. Do we run or turn our faces to the wind?
