Placelessness of Echoes (and kinship of shadows)

Keisha Scarville

Opening Reception: Thursday June 7th, 6-8pm
Exhibition dates:
 June 7th – July 7th, 2018

Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York is pleased to present Placelessness of Echoes (and kinship of shadows), a solo show by 2017 Workspace Resident Keisha Scarville. The exhibition addresses questions of place, power, and self-formation within the nature. At times in the photograph we are privy to the body of the artist, a sole black woman entering the transformative space of the nocturnal American landscape. In these rural environs of the Northeast, outside her home of New York City, she creates objects and images that inhabit the spatial, temporal, and visual ambiguity of darkness. These figural bodies, not quite human, nor animal, nor inanimate articles, unfold as abstract accounts of a nocturnal shape-shifter who becomes part of the landscape around her.
