I’m incredibly excited about my upcoming solo show at DanforthArt I Museum and School. It has been an incredible experience working with the curatorial staff at the museum and I am excitedly planning artists talks and additional programing that will accompany the show.
September 7–November 9, 2014
Members Only Reception: Saturday, September 13, 6–8pm
This exhibition focuses on two of Sarah Pollman’s photographic projects—separated by shifts in philosophy and technique, but united in close observation of the tenuous relationship between the past and present, and the meaning we seek in identity. The spectral and uncanny are evidenced in Pollman’s nightscapes—figures hover on stairs and outside of houses, and the past is forced into the present with solemn monumentality in her depictions of grave markers. Works explore text as a signifier, and ask if an object or a place can adequately represent the ephemeral, as Pollman explores the ghostly traces we leave behind.
