About the Exhibition: 

Right Frame, Wrong Film is a two person show that pushes the boundaries of the viewer's expectations. Hans Gindlesberger's series I'm in the Wrong Film explores the story of a character lost in suburbia. Nicholas Knight has made site-specific trompe-loeil installations in the gallery. Both artists challenge the ways in which we view photography.

James D. Campbell writes, "continued engagement with the works of Gindlesberger and Knight convinces us that they are seasoned archaeologists of the seeing and the seen. Knight excavates the conventions of photographic practice in pursuit of a fully decoded aesthetic; Gindlesberger unearths potent psychological artifacts and tropes that imply much about place, non-place, belonging and alienation."
