Emily Call: Practical Contact

Sep 7, 2018 – Oct 6, 2018

Practical Contact examines altered ways of experiencing the substantial realities of the body as a way of understanding our place within our surroundings. Merging photographs, video, and installation, Call exhibits deliberate scenes that unfold alongside encountered occurrences, giving way to an awareness of our mandatory participation in various experiences. To comprehend sensation, we must be conscious of ourselves and the environments that encompass us.

Call invites the viewer to perceive the world as she does. She links the body with objects, light, and nature, as well as to other humans, to bring a realization of our body’s connection, our human position, with the world.
