DESCRIPTION

This exhibition investigates the relationship between sculpture and photography, 2 and 3 dimensions, and perceptual issues that are integral to those relationships. Artists like Florian Slotawa create sculptural interventions in spaces and document them with photography; Pello Irazu and Laurent Millet use drawing, painting, and sculpture to create the illusion of 3-dimensions on 2-dimensional surfaces; Bettina Hoffmann uses a panning video camera to give us multiple points-of-view on subjects who are frozen still; Heather Mekkelson brings disaster photographs alive by translating bits of information from them into sculptural installations. All of them invite us to imagine the relationship between space and photography. In doing so, we are rewarded with a heightened awareness of the act of looking, and the opportunity to enter a transitive, imaginative state of moving through space and time.
