“Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.” What is the role of photography in the space of projected fantasy? A frame of reference for a thing that may or may not have ever existed, a surface that doubles as both well and black hole. The photograph becomes a location of meaning, both spatially and temporally. We rely more and more heavily upon the image to provide a picture of reality that we can depend on, all the while that location to which we have grounded ourselves becomes more and more disparate, two-faced, and untrustworthy. If we lose the ability to image ourselves, we must ask, where physically are we left to exist? And how then can we keep track of time? What can we imagine as the place we long to be? Or will we accept the fate of the image and surrender to formless, timeless, endless fluidity, without the comfort of a moment, a site, a point of isolation?
Please join Karen Adelman, Andrew Cameron, Chris Coy, Valerie Green, Masood Kamandy and Ryan Perez for Seven Minutes in Heaven.
