DCKT Contemporary is pleased to announce Out the Window (LAX), a one-person exhibition of photographs by ZOE CROSHER. The exhibition marks the release of a monograph published by the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design and featuring essays by Norman Klein, Pico Iyer and Julian Myers.

The question of how to photograph Los Angeles – a place that moves in shifts and perpetual motion with no real center – is central to CROSHER’s recent work. This project investigates LAX and its surrounding infrastructure as a place of non-center and transience, a metaphor for Los Angeles, a city where movement is “not a walking-motion; it breathes in anonymous transit, spread and wide, seen through passing cars or from airplane windows.” Thirty-one photographs taken between 2001 and 2005 will be on view; each photograph was shot from inside a different hotel or motel surrounding Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Within each photograph CROSHER records the descent of an airplane into LAX capturing the tension between peripheral details of interiors and focused images outside the window, animating potential narratives about the room or the world beyond.

CROSHER was recently featured in The New York Times Style Magazine, LA Weekly and Modern Painters and was interviewed for public radio’s studio 360. CROSHER received a Penny McCall Foundation Publishing Grant in 2006. Her work is included in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

The exhibition will be on view at DCKT Contemporary, 552 West 24th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in Chelsea. Hours are 11am to 6pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
