Tyler Los-Jones: The way air hides the sky

December 16, 2013 - March 16, 2014

Much of Tyler Los-Jones’ practice is concerned with the way in which we frame nature and insist upon a detachment between it and ourselves: the anthropocentric assumption that we are distinct from it and not intrinsically linked to it, neither physically nor temporally. That nature is Othered to us and exists for our use, enjoyment, and consumption has long been inherent in the vernacular of landscape photography, and this type of mediated representation of the natural persists to this day largely unchanged.

Raymond Boisjoly: (Shadows) & (Reflections)

August 20 - December 8, 2013

This photographic work continues the artist’s interest in technological mediation, what happens in the space between sender and receiver, and the provisional character of knowledge. The source material for (Shadows) & (Reflections) is the 1961 film The Exiles, which documents one night in the lives of young Aboriginal men and women living in Los Angeles in the late 1950s.
