About this event

The opening reception will be 6:00 to 9:00 pm, with an artist talk at 6:30 pm. catch and take hold is a two-person exhibition of work examines the human quest to capture the ephemeral, through photography, video, installation and performance. Along with photographs and video, referred to as “sound portraits”, Jennifer Bockelman will do a performance within the installation. The work is a study of superposition and the reaction of the body being documented. Roswitha Weingrill will be exhibiting her new series of photographic prints that are magnifications of the reflection of light in people’s eyes. The tiny reflective points appear to be colored instead of white only when highly augmented. Weingril sees “this as a visualization strategy to ask how close you need to be to someone to see something”.
