Through a tremulous prism is a temporary exhibition that brings together works by Achim Lengerer, Ingo Mittelstaedt, Abigail Reynolds and Julie Sass. The title is derived from a sliver of a passage regarding memory in Vladimir Nabokov’s autobiographical memoir, Speak, Memory (1951). It is precisely (or unprecisely) this fragile and fractured experience of recollection/reconstruction of past events, identities and histories that the artists seek to preserve and reflect on. Works on view include video installation, book pages, found objects, text, scripts, heliopgraphic prints, collage, and sculpture.
