Anna Neighbor
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens
November 4 - 27, 2011

The basic driving forces of making, keeping, and losing are laid bare with simple gestures that often take the form of the trace, utilizing materials and methods such as rubbings, imprints, photographic images, videos, mirrors and simple drawings. Their function is not to create a new, lived spectacle for the viewer but rather act as shadows or reflections of the viewer, tethered to their brighter and fuller source. In this case, the works tap into the force and beauty of virility, the wear of vigor on the body, and the tenacious desire to create.

Anna Neighbor was a 2010 Wind Challenge recipient, resulting in a solo exhibition at the Fleisher Memorial in Philadelphia. She lives in Philadelphia and teaches photography at the University of Pennsylvania and Moore College of Art and Design.
