Light Room

Our idea of shape and colour is largely dependent on light as it dictates how and what we’re able to understand. Katie So, Lauren D. Zbarsky and Alexine McLeod explore light as a medium within their installations in the exhibit, Light Room. The artists use light in collaboration with their respective mediums to exemplify its role in the creation and alteration of the viewer’s experience with art. The artists have designed their pieces to engage the viewers with each individual work but to also enable the installations to interact with each other in one cohesive space.

Portrait, 2016

Lauren’s bright and comfortable bedroom in her apartment acts as her personal space, as well as her primary photo studio. Photographing her subjects in a dream-like environment creates an intimate experience for both the artist and subject, providing a safe place for ideas to take shape without judgement or expectation. As Lauren’s photographic process is largely collaborative, she is able to create images that embody elements of herself and her subject together in each frame. Portrait is a representative installation of her bedroom at home. The piece invites the audience to enter the common environment of the artist and become the subjects. The mirror presents the subject(s) with an image of self in the artist’s space while simulataneously representing the perspective in which Lauren views the people she photographs.
