Sarah Clifford – Rashotte @ LE Gallery
Brand New Story
Oct 4th – Nov 2nd, 2013
Brand New Story is Sarah Clifford-Rashotte’s fifth solo show at LE Gallery, and features text-based installation works, as well as photo-collage and ephemera. The works are marked by an obsessive preoccupation towards ritualized erasure explored in both a technical sense (by physically removing an existing surface) as well as thematically (by selectively highlighting one aspect of an image or text over another). The distortions and transformations are intentionally reinforced as inevitable artifacts of the limitations of memory, language and experience. Ritualized behaviours are used to reconfigure and recontextualize source materials which may include found photography, text or even sheet music.
