At a scale larger and closer than life, pink crepe myrtles quiver in spectral layers. Curtains rustle in glowing purple rooms. An antique mirror rests in a water-stained sink. Windows and doors beckon into other worlds. Such is the imagery found in The Lovers, Joy Meyer's large-scale video installation, a project that began while Meyer was in art school at UNC and now receives its complete premiere at Lump. Thirteen channels of video and sound, augmented with objects such as faux-fur rugs, neon signs, and vintage TV sets, create an immersive environment that draws on themes from speculative fiction, epistemology, feminism, and the tarot (the show is named after the deck's sixth card) to test the edges of space and time, love and desire. After this opening reception, fall in The Lovers through June 9. —Brian Howe
