_Opening at the Center for Photography at Woodstock.

artists: Anouk Ruithof, Sara Skorgan Teigen, & Sonja Thomsen

curated by Ariel Shanberg

on view: February 8 – March 30, 2014
opening reception: Saturday February 8, 2014 from 5-7pm

The Center for Photography at Woodstock (CPW) is pleased to open its 2014 exhibition program with the group exhibition, Tabula Rasa. Curated by CPW’s Executive Director Ariel Shanberg, the exhibition will be on view from February 8 – March 30, 2014.

Tabula Rasa, which is Latin for ‘blank slate’, brings forth three dynamic visual artists whose explorations pull at the seams of photographic language. Anouk Kruithof, Sara Skorgan Teigen, and Sonja Thomsen represent a growing interest in forgoing the practice of injecting new images into the overflowing stream that subsumes us on a daily basis. Rather, through their site-specific photo-based installations, each expands on the language of memory, the veracity of photographic impression, and the infinite space held in between and around the photograph.

Through their practice, the artists in Tabula Rasa subvert the imposing and hegemonic nature of the traditional exhibition space directly engaging and subsuming its walls. In combining elements of audience engagement, the temporal, and site-specific spectacle, they also cumulatively transcend the borders of what is a knowingly arcane object – the photographic print – exploring the literal and figurative space in and around the photograph. The cavernous voids, which consistently appear in each of their photo-based installations, reveal the physical, emotional, and intellectual gaps within photography a terrain that ultimately serves as a mirror to our own projections...
