We encounter our fifth heliomaniac in the era of crepuscular death (frozen sun), a time of fossilized dawns, of the muted and the unblessed, in which the once-swirling disk has taken on a defunct quality. The sun seeps into ubiquitous gray (the nowhere-to-be-found), and a new post-apex generation emerges whose children, knowing nothing of the former ways, are instructed to ‘illustrate the strangeness of this old world in their notebooks’, documenting the iced-over form in charcoal tracings with an air of bleak misunderstanding. Consequently, what is left behind is a mere heliomaniacal lingering for which the object loses its three- dimensionality and persists only as barest linear drawing, as codex or sketch, preserved abstractly as a now- extinct inkling, a lesson in ahistoricality (tomorrowlessness). The record; the outline; the ‘large black dot’ whose dwarfing subsumes the surrounding planets in pitch-black-tiers; thus we are left to wonder what happens when Universe is reduced to a mere representational universe, to symbolic or metaphorical gesture, irreversibly long-gone and banished to the pages of lifeless mimicry, seminar, or allegory.

SUBLIMATION is pleased to present a new site-specific installation, UVR / ULTRAVIOLET REALISM, by interdisciplinary artist ALA DEHGHAN at STELLAR PROJECTS. Ala Dehghan’s work is concerned with the social and political power structures intrinsic to life under late capitalism. Examining the physical and virtual configurations of these structures through the lenses of post-humanism and intersectional feminism, she engages collage, assemblage and montage techniques to construct visual systems that investigate and complicate these subjects using both organic and technological elements.
