ENI Contemporary Photography Gallery –New Exhibition: Winter 2014 www.enigallery.com
ENI Gallery is pleased to announce a new online exhibition featuring the work of Sam Laughlin in a confrontation of two photographic series, MNEM and GESCHICHTE.
ENI Gallery is an online Contemporary Photography Gallery presents photographic works within small curated exhibitions often focused on the experience of architecture and the landscape.
In these two photographic series, Sam Laughlin presents and questions the nature of urban and material renewal. In the architectural series, MNEM, subtle lighting reveals the nature of large urban projects within the dark desolate environment. The nature of these structures and the process of constructing are revealed within the earth mounds of the other photographic series, GESCHICHTE.
As we, as a society, dismantle and renew old structures, those distant ideologies are lost to the raw materials that make up our built word. Within this cumulative system, history and the built form act as a reversal of the entropic state of society and matter.
