Gerontion presents Christian Michael Filardo’s latest work, with homage to T. S. Eliot’s poem of the same title (1920). Slipping between states of wakefulness and sleep, Filardo’s photographs and words motivate a liminal meandering. They are willed into being, existing as the pillow talk and the last goodbye all at once. Gerontion moves seamlessly between the sharp darkness of flashed reality and the soft light of consciousness streamed. A gaze and a dream.
