Opening Reception: With Light Comes Soft Collisions

Join us for the opening reception of With Light Comes Soft Collisions featuring works by Sophie Appel, Sami Cutrona, Colleen Donovan, and Eliza Phelan-Harder; curated by Sherwin Rio.


ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
With Light Comes Soft Collisions is an exhibition of works from four artists that deal with the body in ways that are simultaneously fragmenting, connecting, revealing, and obscuring while also challenging traditional notions of photography and video. Sophie Appel investigates intimate collaboration exchanged through the camera as the impetus for mixed media works. Sami Cutrona uses a sculptural-photographic approach to making form ambiguous, controlling what is concealed/revealed and referencing queer bodies. Colleen Donovan exposes the limitations of the camera and the bias of the image-maker, disclosing fragmented information. Eliza Phelan-Harder transforms and transitions plant bodies with a precise awareness of space and material, turning the gallery into an environment for collaboration with exposed expired photo paper. With Light Comes Soft Collisions is an exhibition that is a collaboration of collisions—an exchange of participation, light, and bodies.
