Alex Jovanovich’s 35mm slideshows employ a stark, typically black-and-white palette, a deliberate pace, and poetic language hearkening back to the Old Testament and American Puritanism to explore romantic subjects such as love, spirituality, melancholy, and the cosmos. See his installation at the Biennial through Sunday.
