Transmissions From The Outpost
October 21 – December 3, 2011
Opens October 21, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Thomas Robertello Gallery is pleased to present Transmissions From The Outpost; new photographs by Adam Ekberg October 21 – December 3, 2011. There will be an opening reception Friday October 21, 6-8PM.
Transmissions From The Outpost further explores Ekberg’s modus operandi; combining materials from the human world inhabiting natural and domestic spaces with highly nuanced uses of light. Among his influences, Ekberg cites his personal experiences as a hospice care-giver, analog radio transmissions heard from desolate locations, and watching a barn burn to the ground as a child. The resulting images transmit his activities and explorations, a life lived on the margins and in the shadows, reported back through analog means. Ekberg’s simultaneous absence and presence further communicates a separateness and uncanny luminosity, challenging belief systems and questioning the unseen.
Adam Ekberg’s recent exhibitions in the past year include shows in Cork Ireland’s Crawford Art Museum, Fotografiska Museum in Stockholm Sweden, Baltimore, San Francisco, and Seattle. This is his fourth solo exhibition with the gallery.
