Jesse Houlding, The One Frame Cinema of the Unknown

Gallery Aferro
73 Market Street, 646-220-3772
March 3 - April 14, 2007
Reception: Saturday, March 3, 6 - 9 PM
Web Site

Using a 200-foot long sweep of black paper, light and thousands of pinpricks, Houlding will recreate the Aurora Borealis on Gallery’s Aferro’s second floor project space.

He will be exhibiting cyanotype “light drawings,” one of the oldest and simplest photographic processes. His drawing implements for these were a magnifying glass and the sun. Large-scale “magnet drawings” created by moving iron filings across paper with a magnet will also be on display.

Houlding has stated that “My intention is to capture the mixture of anxiety and curiosity that comes with not knowing, of not being able to trust your eyes,”
