Wunderkammer of Cognition
On Display: January 26-February 24
Zofie Lang explores her fascination with psychology, particularly how perceptions and beliefs influence human behavior and, in effect, create reality. She examines these phenomena by crafting narrative vignettes that apply visual layers containing scientific and superstitious facets. Divided drawers and boxes highlight different elements of a story in separate compartments–a technique she borrowed from medieval gothic art. She reflects on how these containers function to hide secret contents, yet have the potential to reveal them. Found objects from the natural world and bygone times, coupled with her own photographs, evoke a Wunderkammer effect, with each object representing a key narrative element.
