Karchi Perlmann's LA Rhapsody - Super Moon / Opus No.1 is as a life-size, lyrical, 270º panoramic cityscape with the majesty and beauty Angolino's came to expect from many of the city's mountaintop views. However, the scrupulous details of the photograph slowly reveal an image that shrouds a host of narratives and events - sometimes even coming too close for comfort. The sense of beauty from the initial encounter is ultimately derailed by the common voyeuristic curiosity we all share, the fly-on-the-wall privy or the urge to discover hidden details and identify the recognizable. This is all underscored by a sound installation, which subtly reflects the enigmatic life we see. It is this seductive pull that surreptitiously leads the spectator to confront the realities of social and economic dissonance currently defining this great city of Los Angeles.
