Synchronicity Space is pleased to announce TOTEMS, a solo exhibition from artist, Sarah Soquel Morhaim. An opening reception will be held Thursday, September 22nd from 7 – 10pm. The exhibition is on view through October 20th.
The images in TOTEMS transcend their seemingly everyday subject matter. Strange narratives develop among the groupings of photographs, with symbols subtly appearing and repeating throughout the work. Photos of family and friends intermix with landscapes that translate as emotional scenery rather than pure documentation. Ostensibly mundane scenarios seem weighty and mysterious, while the exotic and unique appear familiar. Connections are drawn deriving as much from the viewers own ideas and memories, as established by Morhaim herself. TOTEMS is at once personal diary and set of inscrutable, but resonant clues.
Sarah Soquel Morhaim is a Los Angeles-based artist, photographer, and filmmaker. Morhaim’s photography has appeared in various publications including Jalouse, Vice, W, Paper, and Bon, and her short films have screened at the Sundance Film Festival, Palm Springs International, CineVegas, Maryland Film Festival, and AFI Fest, among others.
