Liliana Bloch Gallery presents Leigh Merrill: This Place Opening Reception
Liliana Bloch Gallery presents This Place, a new exhibition by Leigh Merrill of composite images that examines the construction of desire, fiction, and beauty in our urban landscape.
Merrill's process involves making thousands of individual photographs, videos, and audio recordings while exploring a city or neighborhood, then digitally assembling these sources to create photographs and videos of imaginary spaces. Certain composite images have some veracity, but more often, they suggest visual hyperbole - an embellished scene circulating around a small detail.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 18.
