Working in various mediums, scales, and modes, Erin Shirreff explores our relationship to objects and images, and between two- and three-dimensional space. In a current solo exhibition at SFMoMA, her first U.S. solo museum presentation on the West Coast, Shirreff will show a selection of recent sculptures and photographic works. Forms based on JPEGs are rendered in foamboard and bronze, and offset reproductions are enlarged and given a sculptural dimension of their own. Together, the works examine the slippage between the experience of an object in real space and its photographic representation, where scale, weight, and physical presence are distorted.
