Work by Stamps alumnus Riley Hanson (BFA ‘17) was recently on view in a solo exhibition at No Place Gallery in Columbus, Ohio.
Child 1 taps Child 2’s head exclaiming, “goose.” All the other children watch silently as ducks. Child 1 chases Child 2 in slow-mo, wide-angle zoom on their adolescent smile, flowers tossed by the crew over their head. Child 1 slows, Child 2 crashes into Child 1, they fall to the ground and “accidentally” kiss. The teacher jumps to pull Child 1 off of Child 2. She explains that they can’t kiss because they are only seven. Child 1 explains how they saw it in a movie once.
Riley Hanson: Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Duck. Tom Cruise.
