Reception: October 2, 6-8 pm
October 2 – November 1, 2014
Thursday, October 2, Gallery HO opens WHIRL, an exhibition of new photographic work by Katsuhiro Saiki and Jennifer Williams. In the works on view, Saiki and Williams manipulate photographic images to create new visual experiences of New York City. For a series titled Buildings For New York City, and a number of complementary sculptures, Saiki combines sections of towering architectural structures into unfamiliar sights, using photographic images as raw material in constructing alien space. Williams’ series of collages, The High Line Effect, departs from reality in a similar way; Williams playfully links views from the city’s elevated park, creating a dense and disjointed depiction of place that perhaps more closely represents the experience of the park than a straight-forward image ever could.
The gallery hosts an opening reception Thursday, October 2, from 6 – 8 pm.
The exhibition remains on view through November 1.
