"You cannot go into the same water twice."-Plato
Step Twice is an exhibition of one sculptural "negative" and a set of photograms made during the artist's month-long residency at the Dodd Galleries. The work circles around Karapetian’s current preoccupation with water and migration, and employs the range of her unique photographic practice. These pictures come from questions: What is it in the human experience that drives us from place to place? What do we hope to find in the act of leaving? Might movement ever finally alleviate the pressure of being human, or is it just a performance we need to repeat in order to survive?
