Through sound sculpture, photography and paper collage Sara Dittrich enables the viewer to look internally and externally at the same time.
Her new exhibit Keeping Pace runs from August 13 to Oct. 2 at the Honfleur Gallery (1227 Good Hope Rd. SE) Attend the opening reception from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 13.
Experience multimedia works that meditate on the interconnectivity of the body and the land it inhabits.
The collection of works shown were created through a cyanotype photographic printing process. Tree leaves and other foliage were exposed to the sun on chemically coated paper to create cyan blueprints.
Playing with multiple exposures and collage, laser cut paper, Dittrich builds imagery resembling nervous and respiratory systems. By observing the cyclical nature of politics, land and body, Keeping Pace uses time as a through line for how we continually relate and adapt to the land and vice versa.
Dittrich is an interdisciplinary sculpture artist who wants to build introspective experiences. Viewers of her work become participants –not just seeing or hearing but looking and listening. Her diverse media often include sculptural objects, musical performance, video and interactive electronic technology. Her work is absurd and meditative: she’s placed a cellist in a 9-foot-tall chair, sculpted hundreds of tiny ears from clay or performed with biosensors that matched breath to title movement.
Register today at Eventbrite for the opening reception. Attendance is free.
