This event has ended.

SOHO20’s +/- Project Space presents Totems, a solo installation of new lens-based works by Brooklyn-based artist Zalika Azim.

Investigating the complexities of memory, time, and narrative, Totems features a selection of photographic installation that elegantly merge totemic juxtapositions of analogue photography and wallpaper. In this exhibition, motifs offer and transmit visual codes while conjuring the history of oral storytelling, floriography, and quilting within the American South.

Through creating abstract environments that act as repositories, Asim projects multiple occurrences to simultaneously reference ancestral knowledges. Joining a community of artists that explore existential questions through familial archives, she incorporates a collection of double-exposed photographs taken by her late grandmother, Mary E. Lemons.
