Filter Photo is pleased to announce Lom, a solo exhibition of work by Slovakian artist Dominika Jackuliaková, at Filter Space gallery.
Lom (from Slovak language: Refraction, Rupture, Fold, Break, Quarry) is a quiet, contemplative look at the immutable qualities of stone – both rigid and yielding. Presented in black and white silver gelatin prints, a handmade artists book, and found objects, Lom examines the permanency of this highly manipulated natural material.
What can we learn about a human being by looking at their material interaction in space? Stone negates time in contrast to the more temporary nature of other materials. We trust that stone is a material that lasts, but because of the constant human activity it is almost impossible that something will stay untouched. Stones reflect human touch while simultaneously denying human time scale. Jackuliaková began working on this series in April of 2014 in central Slovakia where she was born, and Vienna where she lived at the time. Looking at stones allowed her to see the differences between two places.
