Kathryn Yancey Exhibition Statement

Like One Each Another explores what it might be like to live in several locations at once, to encounter the wrongness in a shifting environment where a plant can only be understood in the area where it is not. Utilizing both digital and physical space in the construction of ‘sets’, Yancey arranges images, objects and sounds through the lens of poetry, a compositional method that allows the work to exist within the illusive territory at the periphery, where the ‘coming together’ of the disparate elements becomes the subject. Using common digital processing techniques in the creation of layered, time-based sequences, along with more craft-oriented material investigations, there is an insistence upon the illusion of separateness and the complexity that surrounds various fields of containment that leave little mystery or place for the imagination to construct a meaning that is grounded in subjective experience.
