"Snapshots, ephemera, oral stories pasted down, official and unofficial biographies left on bookshelves, found letters and mementos of sorts, suspended in time for constant reconsideration of moments pregnant with political and social agency," are the raw material for Leslie Hewitt's photographs and installations, in which she is stripping away the density of mediated culture, sifting through misrepresentations of genuine ideals. Hewitt quite literally builds on the idea of protest, of flux, of change, of revolution and creates structures which capture temporary manifestations of subjectivity, and which may last an instant or a long time.
