Capricious 88 (now Company) is proud to present Katherine Hubbard’s most recent work of black-and-white silver gelatin prints shot in southern Utah, entitled Four shoulders and thirty five percent everything else. A site she has explored for the past three years, the works set the stage for play between performance and image — placed within a desert landscape marked by sight lines that delineate the field of vision between two facing cameras. Hubbard uses her body to mark the space and depth of the landscape-stage while simultaneously marking the film plane.
A series of black-and-white landscape photographs made with multiple exposures and the compression of numerous points of view into a single frame will be shown in conjunction. Each image becomes a point of consideration in asking how we may look at land now. Four shoulders and thirty five percent everything else is of the belief that all looking is political, as each person does not see the same thing.
