Installation of three photographic projects by American photographer Talia Moscovitz; Home Boxes, From Over Your Shoulder, Her IShe Me.
August 27th- 30th 2009, Thisisnotashop Gallery at Market Studios, Dublin, Ireland.
Home Boxes: The images on the boxes juxtapose the concrete realities home and family with the abstract and the elusive experience of the present moment. This work examines the tension between the external factuality of home as a building and place and the intangible, emotional home of the mind. As we absorb information, our minds shuffle through collected memories and emotions in order to orient and digest what we experience. The visible wires of the low watt bulbs, as well as the boxes themselves, recall the cycle of dismantling and rebuilding of "home" that one must go through as they grow up and are forced to re-evaluate for what that means.
