A Certain Slant of Light

SEE EVENT DETAILS
EXTENDED TO JANUARY 13, 2024

"A Certain Slant of Light" is a two-person exhibition featuring the work of Adrienne Defendi and Anna Rotty. With a sensitivity to materials, image permanence, and the behavior of light, each artist explores the possibilities of the photographic object. The exhibition title is based on the poem, "There's a certain Slant of light" by Emily Dickinson, in which a beam of light transforms the author's understanding of the world itself. This sentiment is reflected in the work of both Defendi and Rotty, who each possess an acute consideration for light as a material. Light is both an origin and a critical element of the destination for their work.

The artists bring our attention to the surface of the photograph and the dimension and tangibility of the art object. Defendi's continued study of 35mm slides unfolds in numerous representations of the archive. She transforms the archive's function from a practical record to an exquisite artifact cast in pewter. Rotty employs non-traditional materials in the creation of her photographic objects, including dry dirt from the Rio Grande, privacy screen, and etched mirror. Each substance invites viewers to move around the piece, consider its physicality, and investigate the conceptual underpinnings of the material choice.
