From Genevieve Kotz’s post at Hamptons Art Hub concerning Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber’s exhibition “Empire”:
ClampArt will present “Lori Nix/Kathleen Gerber | Empire,” an exhibition of photographic prints created in a collaboration between the two artists.
The nine large-scale prints, which were made during a four-year period, depict a world transformed by unexplained catastrophic events, the outcome of climate uncertainty and a shifting social order. According to the gallery, the painstakingly created works are beautiful but unsettling in stillness and silence. The landscape and disastrous scenarios are created by Nix and Gerber from meticulous dioramas constructed in their Brooklyn studio which are later carefully lit and photographed. While the two artists have been working collaboratively for more than 16 years, this will be the first exhibition at ClampArt to credit both artists equally for the imagery.
