This event has ended.

Since the early 1990’s, Annika von Hausswolff has been selectively creating powerful images that defy singular interpretation. Carefully staged, her photographs present a distinct visual rhetoric that is documentary in style, surreal in essence, and rife with reoccurring motifs and personal references. "I am the Runway of Your Thoughts,” dually titles the exhibition and a series of twenty-five photographs on view in the gallery space. Fluctuating between black and white and full-color, different focal points and angles, the prints depict a woman flying a model airplane into her open mouth. This recognizable phallic gesture confronts the viewer; a familiar image that is questioned by the active participation of the female subject. Are these images sinister and violent, or innocent and harmless?
