Sean C. Flaherty: An Overture in Parts
November 3, 2012 through January 14, 2013
CSUF Grand Central
Through a three act video installation, appropriating the soundtrack of the Broadway musical Les Misérables (based upon the 1862 French novel by author Victor Hugo), artist Sean C. Flaherty explores complex family and relationship dynamics.   The installation includes the video works: Act I, The Confrontation: Script as Set; Act II, One Day More: A Family in Parts; Act III, A Heart Full of Love: Familiar Parts.  Flaherty’s work allows the personal to become universal, providing seemingly intimate and private shared matters to be opened to critique.
