Borders | Fronteras
Monoprints | Response Drawings on Photographs
A collaboration with Carlene Munoz
Through the index of photography and the interiority of drawing, we are exploring the notion of a liminal space. Photographing border towns in between Florida and California, politically charged sites of violence and escape become a "threshold" for understanding history.
Oscillating between a fixed understanding of a place and an imagined history, we give equal weight to both physical and psychic record. Tamara's photographs are used to survey the land, while Carlene's drawings are meditations set to reimagine the psychology that inhabits these locations. As both artists work on opposite sides of the country, a transformative dialogue emerges, between their degrees of separation.
