About the Exhibition

This exhibition focuses on two of Sarah Pollman’s photographic projects—separated by shifts in philosophy and technique, but united in close observation of the tenuous relationship between the past and present, and the meaning we seek in identity. The spectral and uncanny are evidenced in Pollman’s nightscapes—figures hover on stairs and outside of houses, and the past is forced into the present with solemn monumentality in her depictions of grave markers. Works explore text as a signifier, and ask if an object or a place can adequately represent the ephemeral, as Pollman explores the ghostly traces we leave behind.
