Full excerpt here

For her third show at Jessica Silverman Gallery, “Live From Somewhere,” Tammy Rae Carland presents photographs made from the light reflected off of disco balls, as well as a video in which a lone spotlight searches for an actor to illuminate. The work, on view January 24 through March 1, questions the meaning and nature of performance and its attendant anxiety, purity, and ephemeral beauty.
