ALICE HARGRAVE:
UNTITLED (expeditions)

Untitled (expeditions) is a series of images exploring moments on the periphery of the chaos of daily life. The work brings to the fore images of memories or reflections on the passage of time, and wanderings of not only place but mind. The photographs are an amalgam of moods, colors, and emotions—images steeped in the tones of memory, loss, and a visceral sublime. Hargrave injects the work with subjectivity through the liberal manipulation of color and color processes, investigating how fugitive photographic substrates literally color memory.

 

Curated by Sandra Binion.
