duet: Friday, 4 March 2016

Jarred Gastreich (St. Louis) and Christian Movila (Bucharest)

March 4-April 23, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, March 4, 6pm – 9pm

Jarred Gastreich and Cristian Movila come together at Duet as a reflection on the complicated relationship between subjectivity, meaning and cultural society as well as a touching dedication to the streets in which their photographs were shot. A special significance toward the “shooting” of a photograph also haunts the juxtaposition of artists. Gastreich was present as a photojournalist during the disturbances in St. Louis following the shooting of Michael Brown and he captures not only the tension of that time, but also the quieter moments. Movila was present in Paris during the Bataclan massacre and shoots the bewildered response to those events as they unfold. The personal significance of many of these photographs and their wider symbolic meaning collapses a world that has shattered and ceased to be and events as yet to be fully understood.
