Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is pleased to announce “A Slight Shift,” a group exhibition showcasing the work of acclaimed photographers and installation artists Charles Pétillon, Javier Riera, and Barry Underwood.
“A Slight Shift” explores how installations challenge the landscape as a medium as well as a subject matter. With a strong poetic and narrative evocation, these installations propose another image of the real. The physical presence of such elements reveals another aspect of the site: strange beauty offering a new spatial experience to the audience. Providing a new interpretation of the landscape, the photographs shown in this exhibition are situated at the intersection of land art, staged photography, and minimalist sculpture; emphasizing the relationship between human and nature along with human and non-human through ecological or political concerns.
