Honey is an exhibition of new work by Denver-based photographer Kristen Hatgi Sink. Sink has created a series of videos featuring the exhibition’s eponymous sticky substance—dripping and pouring over composed objects and human subjects. In them, flowers, fruit, and a young woman remain nearly motionless as honey runs over their respective delicate forms. Their inertia and Sink’s composition and use of a cold, bright light recall traditional styles of painting such as the portrait or the still-life. In the middle of the gallery, and in contrast to the videos’ delicate imagery, sits an austere glass vitrine containing honey. A simple, geometric basin resembling a minimalist sculpture, the tank will be the setting for multiple performances taking place throughout the duration of the exhibition.
