Garis & Hahn is a new space on the Bowery. This first exhibition takes seven Yale MFA graduates and presents a pleasantly frenetic offering of contemporary photography. With an emphasis on community and accessibility, this show exposes the viewer to several lines of perspective revolving around the creation of an image. The comedy of reality, particularly in Monika Sziladi‘s composited images and Matthew Monteith observed reflection, stands in stark contrast to the performative images of Hrvoje Slovenc or Pao Houa Her‘s reclaimed images from media. Although people feature prominently as subjects, Yorgos Prinos and Felix R. Cid contribute urban still lives that ground the exhibition in abstracted contemplation. Gideon Barnett‘s outrageously layered photographs, which capture visitors at the Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. through two layers of glass as they gaze upon a skeleton in a display case, further electrocute the exhibition. Curator Amber Pemberton’s ambitious selection of artists allows photography to refrain from directly transcribing reality, spurring a novel translation all together.
