Edmund Clark, Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out

The Guantanamo detention camp occupies an isolated 45 square mile plot of land in Cuba, its complex a crucial point of cultural convergence amidst the war on terror. Edmund Clark’s project investigates Guantanamo through its influence on distinct notions of home: for the American community who reside in the naval base; the detainees incarcerated in its compound; and the former prisoners who now rebuild their lives in Europe and the Middle East.

From Clark’s statement on ifthelightgoesout.com:

The series’ disjointed narrative aims to convey the sense of disorientation and dislocation central to the daily experience of incarceration at Guantanamo, and to explore the legacy of disturbance such experiences have in the minds and memories of these men. The viewer is asked to jump from prison camp detail to domestic still life; from life outside the naval base and back again – from light to dark.

Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out opens tonight, and runs through January 12, 2013, at Flowers Gallery, in New York City.

Whoa.
