Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present “Light Times”, our third solo exhibition of work by Sanaz Mazinani.
“Light Times” explores a technical history of photography in an effort to analyze visual language, perception, and the contemporary consumption of images. The studies depart from a set of unique light exposures on photosensitive paper which become the material subjects of each investigation. Throughout the exhibition, the camera-less photographs reappear across different media - unmade, reconstituted and recontextualized as sculpture, scent, sound, or technical print. These physical iterations come together to construct a consideration of the discipline's material capacity to register and document while drawing attention to new realities that form when the recorded information is aestheticized.
