Encounter #24: 63102.20131012.0616, archival inkjet print, 30 x 40 inches, 2013

The Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School will feature “Atopia,” a collection of
photographs by Jennifer Colten, from February 13 through April 8, 2015. All are invited to an
opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Friday, February 13.

The photographs present a depopulated world that implies that some event has occurred. Colton
says, “These photographs suggest an aftermath. The sites are not remarkable for their drama, but
noteworthy because of their banality. These are places mostly unnoticed and vulnerable
where the visible marks and traces left behind could easily be erased, removing any
certain marker of its history. As we navigate our environment attempting to reconcile our
relationship to the land, we might in fact discover that nature moves on — certainly altered by
our presence yet, with utter disregard to our existence.”

Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
