Christopher Nickel’s solo exhibition, Stele, is an installation of photographic images depicting the demolition of local infrastructure. The images are from floor to ceiling and throughout the gallery space, surrounding the viewer with the moment they step into the space.
“We live in a time of unprecedented change, driven by constant technological advancement that is manifest in every aspect of our society. As we look towards a future of near limitless virtual exchange of information, our present world of physical structures accelerates towards the past.
Working primarily in photography, my art practice acts as a mechanism through which I search for the physical imprint of these unceasing revolutions and the residue of the stresses that result. In the process, I find myself sorting through the landscape of a past that is being steadily overwritten, a present that continues to consume, and a future that is uncertain. These ruined pillars serve as monument, or perhaps memorial, to an embodied future that is already obsolete." - Chistopher Nickel
