The Hereditary Estate: Daniel Coburn + Homo Bulla: Megan Ledbetter

Daniel Coburn’s solo exhibition The Hereditary Estate explores the dark undercurrent of the artist's’ family history through a series of lyrical and mysterious photographs. These images are deeply personal, yet moving and accessible. Coburn was a young adult when his parents revealed their family history—one that is haunted by tragic events related to suicide, domestic violence, mental illness, and substance abuse. Coburn was disturbed when he realized that a lot of family members and events had been erased from his family album. He set out to rewrite the family narrative through a series of photographs that he made, collected, and manipulated. 

Megan Ledbetter’s solo exhibition Homo Bulla is a study of surfaces and life cycles in the American South. The title, which translates to “man is a bubble,” refers to the fragile, beautiful, and temporary nature of human existence.
