Sa Schloff: Major FiguresJan 29 — Mar 25, 2000


The Major Figures exhibition was concerned with the separation of fame from anonymity within the context of text. Sa Schloff took photographs of famous people from the World Book Encyclopedia and mounted them on nails. The tiny images formed constellations on the walls, each one casting a different shadow. Although the subjects were all individuals of distinction, their identification within the context of the installation without informative text was difficult.
