Viewfinder at Moti Hasson Gallery

NEW YORK.- This summer, Moti Hasson Gallery presents a group exhibition that examines a traveler’s shifting point of view and relationship to place, entitled Viewfinder, the show features works by Carina Randløv, Anna Shteynshleyger, Lucas Kelly, Madeline Djerejian, Joanne Rosen, Dahlia Elsayed, Kathe Burkhart, Frank Benson, and Miriam Cabessa.

The artists in Viewfinder hail from across the United States and around the world. Most have traveled extensively and their works are a record of their memories and of discovered views, such as Burkhart’s photographs of porn shop windows in Amsterdam or Rosen’s series of photographs of a building in Tel Aviv wrapped in a tarp of azure-blue. Elsayed’s paintings are a personal record of ideas and emotions that stem from certain events and places she has been, just as Cabessa’s abstract renderings are a record of her body’s engagement with the surface of the work and reflections of her experience in and of time. Travel is also the impetus for Benson’s examination of the exotic in his Styrofoam replica of Easter Island. Moreover, Djerejian’s images of blonde women traveling alone in Hong Kong turn the Western notion of the Other on its head.

For travelers the landscape is always changing, transformation and transience is the norm. Randløv explores travel in drawings and collages of non-places, hubs or passages in-between here and there. Shteynshleyger’s portraits of men and women riding escalators in Penn Station capture perfectly the drawn-out moment of transition and the anticipation of a destination. Kelly’s cast sculpture of a set of stairs is a metaphor for shifting perspective; a journey upwards or downwards, but a journey with a foreseeable end.
