Opening Saturday, February 15th at & Pens Press, Los Angeles is “For A Moment,” a solo show by Erik Scollon. “For A Moment” extends the meditation on embodied presence and its relation to memory that was begun in “A Moment Lasts Forever Until it’s Gone” at Romer Young Gallery in San Francisco. The objects in “For A Moment” are things creatively borrowed from vanitas paintings as an engine of renewal, as well as reminding us of the importance of the ephemeral lived in moment of the present. The objects simultaneously open up and close down bodily awareness and preservation of memory. The act of securing memory embodies everything you need it to, while not really holding on to any of it, returning you back to the importance of the sensorial experience of here and now.
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15, 2014. 7-9pm
“For A Moment” will be on view through March 10, 2014.
