About the Exhibition
Kirstin Broussard is fascinated by the interstice between perception and understanding and exploresthat threshold both literally and metaphorically through photography and video. If One Were Two shows her recent work, a series of visual narratives that investigate the act of looking, the nature of memory, and time. Each piece is an amalgamation of images- in many cases an extended moment frozen in time which she repeatedly re-enters and re-frames with and through her body. This multi-sensorial exhibition asks the viewer to question: is to see to know, and is to know, to see?

About the Artist
Kirstin Broussard splits her time between Brooklyn (USA) and Berlin (DE). Growing in a small town in Oregon where as a child, she was allowed to wander the wooded paths that surrounded her family home, had a profound effect on her. The natural world was a place of solace, a playground, an endless labyrinth of sights and sounds- a patch of moss was a miniature universe both infinitesimal and infinite. Her interest in photography developed at a young age, and was pursued through graduate school at San Francisco State University where she received an MA in Interdisciplinary Arts. Since 2004 Broussard has also worked for The Museum of Modern Art in New York as a lecturer and teaching artist. The exploration of multiple viewpoints through her work with children with autism,
adults with Alzheimer’s, and people with visual impairments, among others, is an essential part of her practice as an artist. “One no longer exists without the other, the two inform each other in an endless back and forth for which I am eternally grateful- both bring me closer to that delicate balance between surrender and self-possession.”

Tete has a step-free entrance and is located on the ground floor.
