Ellen Hochberg and Susan Gans: interpretations of place at Shift Collaborative Studio

Join us for what is going to be a thought-and-conversation provoking show about place–urban, home, familiar, new– and our relationships with it.

In her new show, Vernacular, Susan Gans works with words and images, with what is seen and the potential back-story–a sort of collective memory to trigger engagement. Using urban Seattle as the visual cue, you’ll see familiar places and images in a different context of words and ideas.

Home: Ellen Hochberg’s intriguing and beautiful images come from a personal exploration of home/not-home.  Perhaps we sometimes feel as much at home in another country or another time as we do in our own living room, perhaps what we thought of as “home” is really just a construct.  Whatever the case, the images Hochberg works with reflect an increasingly wide-lens view of Home.
