Conceptually informed by the artist’s active filmgoing, AS WITHOUT SO WITHIN takes as its point of departure prop sculptures which are transformed both through hybrid techniques of framing, lighting, and superimposition and by being projected in an enclosed, silent architectural space. AS WITHOUT explores the possibility that the surfaces of things are entities worthy of their own depth for and in themselves, demanding to be seen and confronted as they exist.
