Abstract

They are the images that we have from our memory of what the future used to look like.--Angela Grauerholz I'm standing, looking at a cluster of travellers boarding an airplane. The plane is not large, and there cannot be more than a dozen figures assembled on the wet tarmac. It's been raining, though it has stopped now, and despite the brightness in the sky's horizon, everything near is dark, smudged in the gloom of a rain-soaked pause. Within this ambiguity, a white line painted luminously on the surface of the runway intersects with me at the centre of my vision. My viewpoint seems picked out, as in a perspective study, and the scene before me, despite its indeterminacy, becomes an exercise in the appropriateness of things in the world. I'm standing in the Olga Korper Gallery, looking at Travellers by Angela Grauerholz, and the indeterminate nature of the photograph is oddly replicated here. The sun at the moment is from the west, and its light passes through the clerestory onto the gallery walls and floor in ever-shifting intensities.
