Submerge – Kenn Louis

I lived upstairs from the Southside Gallery for five years, and ironically never had a show there until after I moved out.  During my time spent there, I did several shows around Tremont and always loved sharing the basement below the gallery with the current artist in residence and whoever else happened to be around at the time.  The basement became a communal studio space with free flowing ideas always in the air. 

It later became a show space with art and performance, poetry readings and music. It only made sense to have my installation, called Suberge live in the fruit cellar of the basement. Since I don’t have any photos of the installation, I’m contributing an image of cartoon characters that I created while I lived upstairs from the Southside Gallery, which were inspired by life in Tremont.
