Featuring a sculptural photo edition and altered projections of architectural and urban apertures, enclosures, edges and experiences, Erratic Room constitutes an off-kilter vision of the world just beyond our walls. Out-of-sync sounds, unmoored from the images and actions they originally corresponded to, reverberate with an echo or foreshadowing of past and future uncertain events. Simultaneously delimiting and expanding the boundaries of the space it occupies, Erratic Room begets a similarly confounding effect upon our imaginations and memories. From our cloistered vantage point within the darkened room, the enveloping projections assume the form and function of apparitional windows on an unsettled world.
The catalogue contains a curatorial essay and Q+A with the artist by Founding Director Shani K Parsons. An exhibition checklist, full documentation of all the works in the exhibition, and artist/curator bios are also included.
