About the Exhibit
In Temporal Topographies, Becky Alprin, Amanda Burnham, Samantha Gainsburg, Alexander Groshong, Hannah Naomi Kim, Evan La Londe, Cathy Last-Mann, Elena Volkova, and Adam Weir explore the space where time intersects with created and natural environments. Each artist uses distinct methods of inquiry, drawing from physical space and psy- chology, examining how the two come together. They study place. They map the shapes and surfaces of mountains, rivers, and forests. They scrutinize exterior construction— the features of cities, buildings, highways, and fences. They explore interiors, homes, doorways, fireplaces, and windows. They translate these elements into small segments, and remove them from a larger context. Time passes as their buildings dissolve and crumble or are consumed by nature. Structures become fragments, visible traces separate from specific setting or time. These remnants create open-ended narratives and suggest a sense of uncertainty and wonder. Time and space become inextricably linked, ever-changing, shifting, fleeting.
