For her sixth solo exhibition at the gallery, Doherty presents new large-scale black and white photographs alongside a video projection.
For over twenty years Doherty’s work has been concerned with our stewardship of the natural environment. This new project continues to explore that subject amid the effects of air pollution on migratory birds.
The common view of Earth’s atmosphere may be that it is an empty and boundless void, but in fact, it is filled with diverse particles, many so tiny they can only be perceived when they coalesce into the haze of distance. We are deeply entangled with this ecosystem; responsible for its increasingly mercurial character, but also profoundly affected by the air’s intensifying contamination.
I would like to acknowledge the Air Space, Rights, and Materiality Working Group at the University of North Texas, whose fellowship and support were of incalculable value to the project. – Dornith Doherty
