In this exhibition, Aaron Friend Lettner’s photo book Doorways becomes an interactive installation that explores the role of symbolism in storytelling. Offering fragments from the book’s printed form, the installation maintains its original spirit of mystery and transcendence. The book pages are disassembled and scattered behind a wall of doors, inviting the viewer to embark on their own journey as they reassemble the story, gather clues, and solve puzzles. Joining photographs and text, as well as materials from the bookmaking process itself, Doorways employs the language of dreams and the imagination as it circles through the past, allowing memories and materials to meet, converse, and, finally, to part.
A selection of work will also be on view at Earl Selkirk Gallery.
