MAK Center Los Angeles
An installation of photographs and in situ projections by Los Angeles artist Cindy Bernard. Bernard's interest in how the perception of reality is coded by culture has developed through her explorations of photography, film and memory and culminated in her current project "Location Proposals". Transgressing the monocular perspective of photographic representation, eighteen location sites from the woods sequence in Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" rendered with computer-modeling software are displaced in the projection onto another, real space (the Schindler House). This creates a sense of fracture and resembles "a page that flees on all sides but is closed in on itself like an egg" (Deleuze/Guattari).
