Gwenneth Boelens: At Odds and Charlotte Moth: Seeing While Moving are on view February 17, 2017 – April 16, 2017 at the MIT List Visual Arts Center. Both Gwenneth Boelens and Charlotte Moth use unconventional photographic approaches and techniques to explore the expressive possibilities of photography in their work.
Gwenneth Boelens has developed an abstract visual language that attempts to capture the traces of physical movement in space. Boelens uses light, time, and chemical and material processes to suspend and inscribe traces of movement, exploring and illuminating perception, memory, and time. Boelens’ first solo exhibition, Gwenneth Boelens: At Odds features a group of her most recent photograms, wall works, weavings, floor sculptures, and an acoustic piece.
Since 1999, Moth has taken photographs of architectural features throughout the course of her travels and has collected them into her Travelogue series. Much like a tabletop Instagram account, her central piece Noting Thoughts (2011) is a table assemblage of groups of photographs from her Travelogue series that are combined with small bits of text and colored filters. Moth’s first solo exhibit in the US, Charlotte Moth: Seeing While Moving presents photography, sculpture, slide projection, and film pieces that explore the modes of tactile representation.
