Tracy Hall in the Blackfoot Gallery

The ZACC is thrilled to host an In-Progress Series by Tracy Hall in our Blackfoot Gallery, with an opening reception on August 7, 2020, from 5 to 8 PM. (Please note that this event was postponed from the original date of July 10 due to extenuating circumstances)

Tracy Hall is a Missoula, MT artist and writer whose work deals with daily emotional processes through natural phenomena and mythology. Her current series, Binding, utilizes drawing, embroidery, garment construction, and bookmaking to explore different perspectives of what it means to be bound, whether in obligation, under duress, or as an affirmative choice.

This show is an in-progress series of pieces centered around human interaction with nature and the ways wilderness can feel at turns threatening or benign. It mainly features work with ballpoint pen and embroidery. The pieces explore different ideas of ‘binding,’ such as constriction, mutual contract, and holding things together with thread. In several of the pieces, Tracy focused on a common theme of binding flowers or branches to animals’ legs or disembodied human hands. These instances of binding are up for interpretation—as ritual acts, they might be positive, suggesting commitment or sacredness, or they might limit and stifle.
