Opening Reception for Rupture and RULE Gallery’s concurrent exhibition, Soft Mirror: Thursday, March 16, 6 – 9 pm 


RULE Gallery is pleased to present Rupture, an exhibition of works by Britland Tracy in our upstairs Viewing Room. A reception will be held Thursday, March 16, from 6 – 9 pm.

Britland Tracy’s series, Rupture, focuses on the residue of human-inflicted trauma as performed through mass entertainment media. Using her camera, the artist captures scenes depicting human on human violence witnessed in movies and television, making long exposure photographs of the action playing out on screen. The results become singular images densely layered with washes of color and ghostly movement, where over and underexposed elements develop into jumbled cacophonies of gestures and objects. The scenes Tracy selects portray hate crimes and domestic abuse. While beautiful, the resultant pictures act as metaphors for the forgetting that emerges in the human psyche through the gradual buildup of physical and psychological violence over time. The last words uttered in each scene become the title of its respective image, ultimately leaving visual and verbal erasure as the final traces of a ruptured narrative.
