The Governor’s Academy is honored to feature the works of photographer Tsar Fedorksy on campus through Friday, November 19. Fedorsky is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow and a Mass MOCA grant recipient.
“The Light Under the Door and Other Personal Landscapes” centers on personal yet relatable narratives. Fedorsky’s photographs reveal ordinary settings, examining common themes both inside the intimacy of the home and the possibilities of the outside world. Fedorsky’s works include xianotype and silver gelatin prints and use photography to ask the viewer to consider the beauty of light, the mystery of shadow, and the unguarded moments of strangers. Through the lens of Fedorsky this exhibition aims to encourage acts of quiet contemplation.
Exhibit curator & visual arts teacher Shanna Fliegel says, "Fedorsky's compelling imagery invites the viewer to quietly journey inwards and share with her journey through domestic spaces and nostalgic landscapes. Her lens captures a space and time that is transcendent, and calls us all to find intentional presence through a soft and curious light."
Fedorsky graduated with an MFA in photography from University of Hartford in Hartford, CT in 2014 and completed a full-time undergraduate study in photography, Academy of Art College in San Francisco, CA in 1985. She currently resides in Gloucester, MA.
Fliegel hopes that by sharing Fedorsky's work with the community, a typically busy and multi-functional space known as the Remis Lobby will be seen as a gallery that provides nourishment for "our introspective and vulnerable selves".
The exhibit is in the Remis Lobby in the Wilkie Center for the Performing Arts on campus through November 19. Follow @govsarts and @govsacademy on Instagram for updates on public viewing times, an artist talk, and a closing reception.
