On opening night of Brittany Markert’s “In Rooms,” classical music and sunshine filled the loft-like space that is the Fuchs Projects gallery. A few photos hung individually, others as vignettes, allowing space to take in one haunting story thread after another. Markert effortlessly captures a nostalgic loneliness and a mesmerizing impermanence that resembles a memory confused with a dream. She takes her talent for telling stories one step further with her 92-page photographic narrative The Hotel Haunting, also in the exhibit. Her nude subjects exude a wake of honesty and vulnerability, but the forward emotion is an erotic playfulness, as Market often inserts herself last minute into the frame. “In Rooms” is a dizzying collection that simply must be seen in person. Fortunately, the exhibit will be at Fuchs Projects until the 26th.
