Mezzanine Gallery


Upcoming Exhibition – opens Jan. 20

Anamnesis, an exhibition of photography by Bronwen Hazlett, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from January 20, 2021 through February 26, 2021. Hazlett, a fine art photographer based in Clayton, is fluent in digital as well as analog photographic processes. Inspired by an early nomadic journey in life, Hazlett explores concepts of home, place, memory, and self-healing.

This series, Anamnesis, is an exploration of past, present, and potential memories. Hazlett is composing images directly to film with a 120mm Diana F+ camera to replicate the experience of memory. Memories are stored in disparate parts of our brain and when recalled, the experience is reassembled like a puzzle. Anamnesis is the act of remembrance of the past or recollected ideas which the soul had known in a previous existence.

“The many layers of memory are reassembled and become vulnerable to change,” Hazlett said. “Our present experiences and emotions perpetually recompose, overlap, and shift our memories as time passes.” Similarly, her photographs are constructed by shifting and overlapping multiple views of the same image.
