About the Exhibit:

Leigh-Ann Pahapill returns to Chicago for a solo exhibition at DOVA temporary, the new storefront gallery at the University of Chicago. Pahapill creates works that range from deconstructed familiar objects to site interventions, and time-based and two dimensional works concerned with the minutia of knowing and meaning making that informs universalizing epistemologies. Pahapill seeks to dilate the representational moment by studying place, process, objects and experience, dissecting and examining the material, metaphorical, and conceptual components that drive the tendency to move from particular experiences to generalized ideas. Aligning the clich├ęd object or image and its representational system, her work deconstructs the processes that enable meaning making practices.
