DIANNE BOS, SARAH CRAWLEY, STEVE GOUTHRO

January 19 - March 18, 2017

Opening Reception: January 19, 7:30PM

Responding to Suyoko Tsukamoto’s research, this exhibition addresses the gaps within the official retelling of war histories through archival images, family photographs, and works by Dianne Bos, Sarah Crawley, and Steve Gouthro. To Bury the Sun looks at the responsibility and burden of remembering, both collective and personal. Bos’ pinhole images of War War I sites are idyllic and haunted, sheep grazing on the landscape shaped by trenches and bombs. Crawley’s images of ‘dead albums’ contain only traces of absent photographs, while their original contents have been moved into archives. They are an archive of absences, images severed from their context. Meanwhile, Gouthro’s work in the scale of historical war painting subverts the expectation of a grand narrative and replaces it with the mundane - a soldier is a surprising passerby on a familiar city street.
