Every point is the center2014 by Kate Bonner
Using digital brushes, power tools, and a language of fragmentation, she seeks to expand space, to break through the surface of the image. Her work is an attempt to see in, around and under images. It questions limits and points of entry. The images are points in time, spliced into a location. As moments, the images compete with each other, and submit to each other inside the confines of a flattened plane. Each piece has a front and a back; mounted rather than framed, they operate like snapshots – folding, bending, leaning. There are borders and frames inside the image (both around the rims of the photographs, and around the edge of the digital print), while cuts and folds in the work turn the room into an even larger frame. Discarding any distinction between sculpture, photography, and installation, Kate Bonner acknowledges our human desire to investigate, to know, to mentally construct, while simultaneously confounding it.
