Willa Nasatir at Chapter NY

We expend a lot of labor and energy to make objects seen and desired,though perhaps not anymore understood. Our relationships to images are far more mutable; we exalt them for their adaptability, readily dislocating them for infinite possibilities of a re–encounter.


Are bodies and objects equally meant to be on display? In this gallery there are three walls and one window; the window—the frontal view— reveals four photographs, and at least one body. Two photographs are framed under glass; two additional photographs fill the wall to be framed by the floor and the ceiling. How do bodies enter into an image—, to a piece of paper saturated with chemicals? We expose ourselves to images incessantly, but they almost never contain enough space for us to share in. These photographs are coming closer to us, removing certain veils we’ve felt before, extending backwards and forwards, side–to–side. We start to feel a kinship, a déjà vu, a particularity with the objects within.
