L. KOLTUN | DISTRACTION | AUG. 6 - AUG. 17
Vernissage: August 6, 2015
August 6 - August 17 2015
Guns fired; inquests held; juries convened; riot gear donned; rifles slung and cocked — how long has police action generated reaction? The past is prologue everywhere — London, Russia, Monte Carlo, New York State, Chicago, Utah. L. Koltun grabs and skins imagery from today and from a hundred years ago, forces new game plays to expose the bleeding bones of the loyalty and love we have for shooting that shape shifts to entertain us. She walks us to the edge of seductive horror, where the camera is indulgence, the strong fear the weak, and distraction is injustice.
