Centering the Margin


For this show Eric Theise has adapted his 16 millimeter film "To No End Gathered". The film documents an exposed wall in downtown San Francisco and the mesmerizing play of shadow and light on tattered wallpaper from long disused interior spaces revealed for the first time in decades. Such spaces are literally in between in the way of human tissue. Ghost walls like this pop up from time to time in cities, briefly giving a glimpse into the past that is usually subsumed by the city’s constant need to evolve and repurpose itself.
