Everything is Made of Light features images and texts from four contemporary artists that question, challenge, and converse with notions of the “unrepresentable” within our contemporary culture. Jacques Rancière, in his essay, Are Some Things Unrepresentable?, scrutinizes the challenges faced by images in depicting the world around us. This raises provocative questions surrounding camera-based images whose truth value is constantly being eroded within contemporary culture, and a world that is seemingly always becoming more difficult to represent. How can images and language be used to expand, rather than contract, our understanding of contemporary culture? How are new strategies created to represent the intangible, imperceptible and elusive? What is the camera’s role in enlightening us regarding complicated notions of “truth”?
