"Out of Focus: A film based exhibition"
2000-11-04 until 2000-12-04
Detroit Contemporary
Detroit, MI, USA United States of America

Detroit Contemporary presents Out of Focus, a film based exhibition including installations, film projection, painting, photography and sound. The exhibition features the works of Detroit area artists Mitch Cope with constructions of painting and photography on wood, Nicola Kuperus exhibiting fashion-based photography, Linda Soberman with an installation and Edward P. Foley with photographs and film projection.

The Artists/The Work

Inspired by solitude, time and decay, Mitch Cope's wood pieces, exhibited in the first floor gallery, are reflective microcosms of Detroit's landscape. Cope's constructions emphasize texture, color and architectural proportion, within a quiet and meditative environment.

Exhibiting in the second floor gallery Nicola Kuperus blurs the line between fashion photography and fine art. Kuperus' images include a sense of mystery with her models cropped in stiff and awkward positions.

Linda Soberman's installation in the brick room gallery references post war Poland and the aftermath of the Jewish holocaust. The installation consists of photo transfers of faces on windows that suspend with a door from the ceiling creating a ghostly presence.

Edward P Foley examines ordinary time based events in nature with a film and audio installation. Set in the coasts of the Great Lakes as well as the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States the film documents changes that take place over a long period of time. Using time-lapse photography to compress the cycle of tide change, Foley attempts to inform the viewer of the dramatic impact tides have on coastal regions.
