Brandon Lattu | Opening


Opening Reception:
Thursday, September 16, 8:00-11:00 p.m.

2861 West Avenue 35
Los Angeles 90065

Regular hours are 4:00-8:00 p.m., Wednesdays & Saturdays, September 16 - October 16, 2010

The MAK Center is pleased to present this new work by Brandon Lattu, a phenomenological, interactive artwork in which the viewer's shadow and movements activate light-sensitive cells to produce ever-changing patterns of light on the walls and ceilings of a room.

Reciprocity of Light revitalizes the basic aspect of photography: a surface sensitized to the interruption of light. In this piece, the artist has sensitized an entire room to demonstrate the increasingly conjoined ideas of image, architecture and the body of the viewer. Here, the projection of the viewer's body becomes an image as well as a sculptural component of the piece.

The work invokes the spirit of works from the 1960s that moved away from the commercial gallery establishment to more informal, adaptive spaces and sites. The artist identifies strongly with the goal of producing idealistic works that determine the necessary means of reception rather than conforming to the industrial norm.

Los Angeles-based artist Lattu (b. 1970) utilizes photography, sculpture, and video to investigate the state of representation today in order to push beyond the conventional empiricism that pictures of the world have traditionally invoked. He teaches at UC Riverside and has exhibited internationally in prominent galleries and museums.

From downtown Los Angeles take the 5 North to the 2 North, then take the 2nd exit, Verdugo Rd. At the light take a right on Eagle Rock Blvd, go three blocks then take a right on West Ave. 35. Street parking is available on W. Ave 35, Eagle Rock Blvd., and Bushwick St at the end of the block.
