A tightly arranged three-person show in the small north gallery, SIMULTANEOUS INVERSIONS takes as its starting point the concept of tonally inverted reflections, playing upon the gestalt of the mutually defining phenomena of light and shadow. The works presented probe that fine line between an absent presence and a present absence, delving into issues as seemingly unrelated as the process of photographic reproduction, familial/national (dis)connections, Lacanian subject formation, and memento mori. Jenny Yurshansky’s theatrical installation piece literally sets the stage for this dialogue, offering a spot lit space for the viewer to gaze hopelessly into a semi-reflective portal. Anthony Goicolea’s contributions confront his own sense of dislocation from a family cohesion distant in both time and space, recreating old photographic portraits by hand, but in negative, of his parents from their childhood in Cuba. Ashley V Blalock’s shadow portraits also translate photographic images, firstly in crocheted textile panels, and secondly by using those panels to project the inversions of these diaphanous bodies on the gallery wall, becoming a living camera obscura.
