Mazmanian Gallery presents Backups, a solo exhibition by media artist Katherine Behar. Digital culture constantly generates alternative copies or “backups” to minimize risk. Behar’s sculptures and videos unlock lost potential from these stocks of substitutes. Matching humor with critique, her works reinvent the data and devices we have abandoned to storage.
