Teju Cole: Blind Spot and Black Paper
June 15th — August 11, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 15th, 6–8PM
“In the Blind Spot photographs, we see what Cole has seen: a park in Berlin, a mountain range in Switzerland, a church exterior in Lagos, a parking lot in Brooklyn. We are drawn into the texts, which function as voiceovers, and which complicate Cole’s already enigmatic images. At stake here is the question of vision, an exploration Cole began following a temporary spell of blindness in 2011, and which he presents here in a photographic sequence of novelistic intensity. “
