We will be chatting with photographer Sean Mundy about his current exhibition Hollow during our Open House.
HOLLOW (Gallery B+C)
Probing at the empty centers of socially constructed value systems, Hollow proposes surreal re-imaginings of the everyday collective happenings of our world. Removed from reality just enough to invoke the uncanny, the images hold up a mirror to what we often overlook and accept without question.
With the criticism of traditions that we as society continue to uphold despite awareness of inherent flaws or outdated irrelevancies (thinking especially of political, religious, and economic structures) at the center of Mundy’s intentions, the photos that make up Hollow present austere moments of dissonance between the individual, separate states of self, and collective systems.
The Open House is from 12-5 every Saturday where you can also view the other exhibtions:
David Uzochukwu (Brussels, Belgium)
Brendon Burton (New York, USA)
Kyle Thompson (Portland, USA)
Brian Oldham (Los Angeles, USA)
WHISPERING STILLS is a group show exploring the impact of social media on socially isolated youth. In their solitude, the four young photographers (all under 25) have found, in social media, an outlet for their creativity using different platforms to share their experiences of photography and ultimately become true friends.
Richmond Lam and Eve Thomas
April 16 – May 28
POSTER BOYS is a portrait series that plays with gender, empathy, nostalgia and the female gaze. Under the direction of artist Eve Thomas and photographer Richmond Lam, 17 female models transformed themselves into uncanny versions of Tiger Beat heartthrobs c.1993. The result: Women pretending to be boys playing at being men for little girls. It’s drag that isn’t quite drag, in photos that are as wholesome as they are disturbing – just like the original glossy posters. In addition to the portraits, the installation Idol Worship includes shrine-inspired sculptures from art collective #boycrush as well as video work from Amy Didemus, Boys Will Be Boys: Wet Nightmares, a portal into the echo chamber of frenzied teenage desire.
