    Charlotte Prodger's United States debut features new and existing works taking on the dérive as a storytelling device. Using sound and moving image, Prodger interweaves narrative fragments that imbed time and place through her subjectivity. Disparate topics and sites become linked through her lens. Her site-responsive sculptural works also perform a subtle peeling of the architectural space, rendering details visible.

    This exhibition marks the U.S. premier of Prodger's new video work, BRIDGIT (2016), shot entirely on her iPhone which she approaches as a prosthesis - almost an extension of the nervous system. Taking its title from the Neolithic deity, BRIDGIT is a journey across vast time periods and landscapes, focusing on female attachments that include friends and shape-shifting entities, among other figures of admiration. The exhibition includes new works on paper as well as a new sculpture that bridges the exhibition site and the video by connecting the dimensions and qualities of the building to the content and form of the video projection.
