Priya Kambli and Mel Keiser: A hole’s made of itself.
December 2–31, 2016
Opening Reception: December 2, 6–9 PM
This intimate exhibition explores the relationship of self to society, family, and ultimately self. Priya Kambli, after finding a family snapshot that was marred by her mother, alters photographs from her family archive as a way to conjure a personal mythology of her ancestry, and reconcile her relationship with her heritage. Mel Keiser creates visual multiplicities of herself to examine whether identity is singular or a system of discrete beings. Working with photography in visually distinct ways, both artists examine the role they play in the larger arena of the social construct of self, desiring to reconcile identity and relationships within a kind of personal void.
