Kyle Knodell, Off Set, 2013
Curated by Eli Ping
An empty space sets a thing off. Elevates it. Lends it pristineness. Fine. A peak is an occasion for contemplation. But most days are spent at lower altitudes, with one's face pressed to the grain. The air isn’t thin or rare. It sticks to the skin and has to be washed away at night. There is no sojourn and the summer brings no respite.
