University of North Texas Art Galleries
This exhibition features 16 photographs selected from the series Shiny Ghost, which has been ongoing for more than ten years. The exhibition celebrates Cox's return to UNT as a visiting faculty member in the Photography Program at the College of Visual Arts and Design. It is organized in conjunction with the release of her monograph on the project, also titled Shiny Ghost.
"In this project I have documented the final years of my Grandmother’s life as she was suffering from a degenerative brain disease. The images were made during moments of conversation, gesture, and experiences of death. The variety of photographic approaches towards the subjects are representative of a frantic need to record all aspects of my knowledge of her (whether performative or candid) in a hopes that these moments could be pieced together again, attempting to construct a more accurate portrait of how I would remember her.
