Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27 2014

GUILLERMO SRODEK-HART – (b.1977, Argentina) drives deep into the Argentine countryside to tell human stories by pointing his camera at the spaces where people have lived and worked on a timescale and agenda separate from the familiar, contemporary urban life. Srodek-Hart’s images speak to authentic lives, as the large-format images are filled with traces of human presence, built-up over decades. The interiors of bicycle shops, bars, restaurants-on-the-side-of-the-road, butcher shops and other places where time seems to have stopped reveal both visible and invisible elements.

Stories is an inherently collaborative project as Srodek-Hart speaks with the owners of the spaces and shares with them his stories. When asked, “Why aren’t there any people in your photographs?’ he answers ‘Look closely, they are all over the place.’ Ultimately, his images of interior spaces become a metaphor for the transience of all human existence and the stories we leave behind.

Guillermo graduated from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2004 with a BFA in photography and he received his MFA from Mass College of Art in 2008. Guillermo has received numerous awards for his work and his work has exhibited internationally, most notably in the 55th Venice Biennale. Curated by Heidi Aishman.

Animals and Interiors/Birds of a Feather
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Claire Rosen

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27 2014

CLAIRE ROSEN (b.1983 New Jersey)- Known as a photographer whose whimsical imagery is inspired by fairy tales and fables, Rosen presents birds that are posed against complimentary vintage wallpaper. The resulting optical illusion of visual blending is reminiscent of Victorian Optical Illusion Postcards in which the image of the bird can either be seen as a flat part of the wallpaper or as bird posing in front of the wallpaper. 
The visual relationship presented in the series between birds and wallpaper serves as the beginning of a discussion about how people see themselves in their environment. Some of the birds appear to be posing, as people would, to try and stand out from their surroundings and draw attention. Other birds turn their back to the camera and seem to want to use the wallpaper to camouflage themselves out of the center of attention. In both case, Birds of a Feather opens a dialog about the relationships between animals, humans and interior design.

Claire graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 with a BFA in photography. She received a liberal arts AA degree from Bard College at Simon's Rock in 2003. Claire has won numerous awards for her work and in both 2012 and 2013, Claire was included in the Forbes 30 Brightest under 30 list for Art and Design.

STEVE AISHMAN (b.1975, Michigan) – Love comes in many colors. So do love notes. Steve Aishman's work displays a permanent state of romance where shopping lists convey as much love as a sonnet. People don't send love letters anymore, but they send text acronyms like personal coded messages. DM Me CILU. In the series The Aishmans, Steve displays the latest of the 16 years worth of daily notes that he has written to his wife. Also on display are Aishman's photographs of frozen moments of domesticity that are allegories for the passions we all find in the everyday existence we share with loved ones.

Aishman graduated from Princeton with an AB in Astrophysics in 1997 and received his MFA from the Museum School in 2001. He has received numerous awards for his work and most recently had a solo show at he prestigious JCCAC in Hong Kong.
