Arielle Rebek: Contact
Soma Grand
Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Exhibition Dates: 
Feb 12, 2018 to Jun 15, 2018

Using light as a material to make photographic gestures, Arielle Rebek explores the passing of time and memory of experience in her installation, Contact. Light serves as both material and metaphor in her cyclical process of experimentation, observation, and response. Rebek chooses to bypass the camera to work directly with light sensitive material and physically contact the moment and subject of capture. What remains is a unique residue of both action and meditation. Reflections on time and memory guide her decisions, as she manipulates the phenomenon, materiality, and illusion of photography. This off-site installation will be on view at Soma Grand 1160 Mission Street, through June 2018.
