Part consignment bookstore, part edgy gallery, Left Coast Books features an exciting new exhibition: Reversal: An Exhibition by Kimberly Hahn.
The cool, austere venue is ripe for Hahn’s equally contemporary art exhibit, which opens Wednesday, March 20. The artist’s reception takes place Saturday, March 23, from 5–7 p.m.
Hahn‘s exhibition is a mock photo shoot involving two sculptures of serigraph screens that face each other. Their surfaces are covered with a photosensitive emulsion that photographs the sculptures themselves, while the images on the sculptures cast shadows onto black paper backdrops. This process interestingly complicates the relationship between object and subject, as photographic representation comes to play both roles.
