BRITTANY NELSON


2017 LATE WINTER exhibit

Brittany Nelson is a 2017 True/False Visual Artist, whose work was chosen for display during the festival for its relationship to the theme, “Out of the Ether.” The 3 polypropylene prints are an excerpt from the series “Monuments to the Conquerors of Space.” The series title echoes the plaque of a Soviet monument in Moscow celebrating space exploration. Technically photographs, the compositions are made by deconstructing a photo-enlarger, then arranging and exposing its parts on a light-sensitive surface, resulting in deeply spatial images reminiscent of Russian Formalist works.
