A Project by Jamie Marie Waelchi
Saturday, March 24, 6pm – 9pm
H/D +Projects is proud to present Alone on Holidays by Jamie Marie Waelchi. This work examines our cultural relationship to loneliness, solitude, and disconnect within the modern and urban environment. She attempts to connect, through photography, with her subjects that are coping with the same solitude she embraces, focusing on days in which are known for gathering, community, and celebration. She does this act alone thus creating a parallel from artist to subject and then again from artist to viewer. With her elegant installation she explores her own inability to breach the boundaries of social anxieties which has become a growing paradigm in which we all have felt. The temporal nature of the exhibit only coincides with these ephemeral feelings which her work invokes.
