Katie Grinnan: Attempts to stand on shifting currents
Exhibition: October 2, 2011 – January 22, 2012
Reception: Saturday, October 8, 2011, 7-9pm
Curator: Irene Tsatsos
Katie Grinnan asserts that capturing a photographic image of a specific place transforms its content, meaning, and identity into portable material. Her photographs, which she integrates into her sculptures, installations, and performances, thus simultaneously reference and re-create actual spaces in the world, depicting the fractured way we see and interpret events and places. Thematically, her work explores the paradoxical relationship between the permanence of the frozen, photographic moment and the entropy that occurs over time in both the physical and photographic world.
