About The Work

This C-Print by Sarah Hobbs is part of a series included in her show "Twilight Living," at Channel to Channel. It depicts two blue inflatable chairs and a table made of pool noodles furnishing a room lined with sandbags. The fireplace mantle behind the chairs holds four very carefully placed flashlights. A lifejacket is hanging on the wall as if it is a prize taxidermic buck.

The term twilight used to seem mysterious to Sarah Hobbs, in a poetic and romantic sort of way. But the more her mind dwelled on the idea of it, the more unsettling and confusing it became. The word sounds lovely as if it doesn’t belong to its true meaning, which is a period of ambiguity or gradual decline. Twilight is the space between the known and unknown. Hobbs is interested in the various ways we attempt to cope in this space. There are those who are fine to live in twilight -choosing to be removed or feeling comfortable with not having to make choices or changes. But, there are also those who cannot abide by it. How one might attempt to deal with the ambiguity is the essence of this work.

Twilight Living is an exercise in topoanalysis – the psychological study of the sites of our intimate lives. What do we do in our private spaces to assuage our anxiety in the ambiguous times in which we live? There is a weighing down on all of us these days, on our society, and so much of the anxiety of our time is social (and much of that spurred on by politics). Sometimes we dance around topics, trying to feel out another’s philosophies. “Am I going to find myself aligned with this person or opposed?” Turning inward can be a detriment, but we are all so wary of our fellow man, of conversing freely, that it feels like a comfort now to metaphorically hibernate.
