DESCRIPTION

Schneider Gallery is pleased to present Pablo Soria: Nocturnal. The long exposure, an extended period in which photographic film or sensor is exposed to light, produces a flattened space where time collapses within a singular image. It is within this space that Pablo Soria makes varied attempts to negotiate his relationship to his homeland, San Miguel de Tucumán in Argentina. Using the darkened night sky as a means to “draw out” his compositions, Soria strategically moves about the frame, his apparition appearing in some images while others only depicting the residual products of his actions. Through the manipulation of light, he renders the familiar unfamiliar and presents the viewer with images referencing his memory of place. Memory’s haze provides the screen that Soria utilizes to explore what it means to return home.
