Frederieke Taylor Gallery is pleased to present Mystery, a group show of photography and video featuring twelve artists, curated by George Spencer. An uncanny feeling of dislocation of the familiar pervades the works selected for the show. Stark landscapes, glimpses into domestic daily routines, levitating buildings, voyeuristic views, all seem to offer clues to the "who, what, where, and when" of life today. Questioning our own lives, we are searching for an answer to the unknown in the mystery of others.
Artists included in the exhibition are:
Victoria Fu, Daniel Gordon, Enikõ Hangay, Jeremy Helton, Wayne Hodge, Katrin Korfmann, Sangbin Im, Bill Jacobson, Matthew Pillsbury, Ray Rapp, Matthew Schenning and Evan Schwartz.
Victoria Fu's short films and photographs are grounded in everyday situations, yet manage to make the viewer feel an undercurrent of anxiety about what is not being shown or explained.
Daniel Gordon creates a disjointed viewing experience by photographing temporary sculptures pieced together from other photographs, usually found on the internet.
Hungarian artist, living in New York, Enikõ Hangay is interested in recording the overlooked aspects and details of daily life in an urban environment. By the simple act of looking and with the transformative power of light, even the most mundane moments of the day-to-day experience can reveal wonder.
The photographs of Jeremy Helton focus on perception and memory, creating environments where an immediate and present experience is connected to an implied and sometimes fictionalized past as interlocking points of reference. For his work in this show, the artist shows large Polaroids of videos, originally shot on Super 8 film.
