Sarah Rara: Alias
July 11, 2018 - July 15, 2018
solar rays reached the surface without meaning
depending on the day
the observer melts exactly where the sun rises
the heavy sun tethers to hangers-on
throws them counter-clockwise
the northern axis points in the direction
no one yields
colors de-saturate in the dark
a cylindrical projection graphs the sun
rolled for an eye to look through
feel what happened to the horizon after the fires
we need to take all that we can, read the azimuth, and run
when the sun flickers, time abolishes pleasing positions
Human Resources presents Alias, an exhibition of new video work by Los Angeles-based artist Sarah Rara.
Rara’s multi-disciplinary practice—incuding performance, writing, and video—explores the position of witness within fragile systems.
For Alias, Rara focuses on a characteristic distortion of sampled images—Aliasing—where one grid fails to cleanly capture another, and separate entities become indistinguishable. One form ingesting another, a parasite larger than its host: Alias is a story about solar energy, ruined by observation.
