The Front Room Gallery presents The Searchers, Sasha Bezzubov and Jessica Sucher, now to May 4; Friday-Sunday, 1-6 p.m.
This exhibition of photographs by the collaborative team Bezzubov and Sucher examines various aspects of Western spiritual tourism in India and features large scale photographs taken at sites including the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune, the Divine Life Society in Rishikesh, and the Mahabodi Temple in Bodh Gaya.
Bezzubov and Sucher investigate the lure of India’s rich religious history in Utopian communities, yoga centers, and meditation retreats that cater to Western seekers. Engaging with the visitors of these locations and immersing themselves in the subculture of spiritual experimentation, Bezzubov and Sucher create spatially astounding images that encompass the visual strangeness and cultural collisions of this phenomenon.
“The Searchers” consists of several series of photographs that present these themes through portraiture, landscape and abstraction.
The Front Room is at 147 Roebling Street in Brooklyn. For information, call 718-782-2556 or visit www.frontroom.org.
