> DESCRIPTION

Anonymous Front marks a new arc in Gina Osterloh's practice as she addresses perception, the body as prop, identity, and sight and blindness through photographic works, sculptures and video. Her photographs depict rooms constructed of paper and fabric, demarcated with meticulous dot matrix and light patterns in which figures flutter between flatness and three-dimensionality. Osterloh's new film project, commissioned by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, is a visual essay on physical blindness and identity, created in collaboration with a vocational massage therapy school for the blind in the Philippines called New Vision. Through pared down materials and aesthetics, the artist addresses the structure of sight and perception.
