UBS 12 × 12: New Artists/New Work
Kerry Skarbakka

Dec 6–29, 2002

Kerry Skarbakka’s anxiety-provoking, large-format photographs depict figures falling from dreadful heights. These images, which document actual falls the artist has staged with the daring and skill of a Hollywood stuntman, signify the surrendering of control to external forces. As a result, feelings of helplessness yield to the more expansive sense of release and liberation.
