Caput Mortuum: photographs by Jennifer Bockelman
Jul 31, 2017 - Sep 1, 2017 | Art Exhibition | 10:00AM - 5:00PM | KHN Gallery
Bockelman's recent series of photographs come from an interest in themes of power as as filtered through language, in particular, official governmental output such as tweets. Caput Mortuum, or literally "dead head", refers to the worthless residue left after an alchemical transformation or to a worthless element. This exhibition reflects an attempt to pit magical thinking against its own logic, to transform lead into gold.
