DESCRIPTION

The production and distribution of images are useful tools for how one might establish control over geography. This ability to reduce what is seen to a two-dimensional miniature bestows a narrative authority to the producer over the recorded subject.  Through various sculptural and photographic methods of intervention, the works in Distant Images, Local Positions deal with the indexical problem of photographic representation in relation to geography. Traditional image systems of understanding place are questioned and subverted by each artist as revisions that challenge contemporary conditions of perception and reception.
