Southern Exposure presents three solo exhibitions: Jimbo Blachly & Lytle Shaw (Eds. The Chadwick Family Papers), Aaron Maietta, and Soft Turns (Sarah Jane Gorlitz and Wojciech Olejnik)
Sarah Jane Gorlitz and Wojciech Olejnik are the collaborative duo, Soft Turns. Their project, Behind the High Grass, takes the form of a series of display cases and a pair of animated videos that hint at the historic journeys of two Czech explorers and Gorlitz and Olejnik's recent attempts to unravel their mysterious story. Taking inspiration from a Czech travelogue they found missing its narrative pages, leaving only the images within, Soft Turns challenges the audience to mirror their investigation by piecing together their own narrative linkages between the elements within the installation.
