The Split between the Eye and the Gaze includes works by 10 New York based artists. The title for this group exhibition is borrowed from Jacques Lacan’s text of the same title from 1964, as published in The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis. Each of the works in the exhibition can be viewed through a Lacanian scope of interpretation of what Merleau-Ponty identified as a fundamental "reversibility" in vision: The body is simultaneously a subject and an object: The body is the seeing and also the seen, and even more so, it can be observed. The artists included in this exhibition explore different notions of this reversibility in vision, and its implications over our contemporary everyday experience.
