Me Into You...

I just got word of another event that I unfortunately won't be able to attend. The fabulous Keren Moscovitch is having a showing of her photographs. Her highly sensual work seems to function as evidence of a moment; she has a particular talent of distilling a particular gaze, finding the space between people, weighing the gravity of nearly empty room, and glorifying seeming mundane objects. (I'm particularly fond of her Un-Earthly Remains series.)

If you're around you should check it out! Below is the press release:

"Me Into You"
Opening Friday, November 7 from 7-10pm

These photographs investigate both the limits and infinite possibility of intimacy. How does intimacy and sensuality manifest in relationship? From deep emotional resonance to raw sexuality, bodies and gestures are arrested by the camera, made available to the viewer and presented as rich tactile environments. Inhabited spaces become stage sets for relating and subjects are integrated into the viewer's full sensory field. These images are an invitation into a sexually charged atmosphere, transmitting the sensation of desire, tenderness and lust.

Keren Moscovitch holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts and a BA from Georgetown University. Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions, both in the US and abroad, including the Art + Commerce Festival of Emerging Photographers, which traveled worldwide throughout 2006, and was exhibited in her first solo show at Vlepo Gallery in Staten Island in 2005. She has been featured in publications such as Quest, Peek, Domino, Zeek, Industry and Vogue Nippon.
