This event has ended.

De Wit continues her insight into the field of “future archaeology”, creating a trail of crumbs for imaginary viewers millennia from now. While De Wit also works with ceramic floor installation, for her second exhibition at the gallery, paintings alternate with and echo her relatively smaller ceramic-photo collages. Reprints of textbooks or nature imagery drawn from National Geographic form the backdrops for raw, glazed, or photo-printed ceramic shards. In her paintings, enigmatic fragmented shapes sit atop abstracted backgrounds. De Wit’s work causes the viewer to question what exists physically, and what is a translation or reproduction. With sleight of hand, De Wit shifts between historical purveyor and visual trickster, leaving us to imagine not only her conjured histories, but how others will eventually imagine ours.
