An exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Scoli Acosta.

Based on the play between dawn and dusk in the Terrence Malick film Badlands (1973), Acosta’s was to fall as night was to break… portrays the American landscape in ways both metaphoric and realistic. Through the excavation of natural, personal, social, and political histories, Acosta’s work exposes a dislocated landscape infused with darkness, sadness, perplexity, and isolation. The displacement of this landscape is paralleled by Acosta’s use of fragments from Land of the Lost alluding to the T.V. series in which a father, son and sister on a family hiking trip enter through a “time doorway,” a non specific era in Earth’s history, an enigmatic zone whose geographic location and time remain unknown.
