Vesna Pavlović ( Belgrade, Serbia) & Maria FinnMay 6, 2011 / June 13, 2011
Opening reception May 6, 7:00-9:00 PM
The theme of the “Hidden Narratives” project is the exploration of the existing friction between the documentary and fictional representations. While Pavlović concentrates on the appropriation of the existing images and modes of their photographic representation, in her drawing and video works, Finn creates fictional narratives that test our ability to comprehend the offered sequences and narratives. The project develops around a group of found vintage slides, which depict one family's travels around the world in the 1960s. While looking into materiality and physicality of these objects, the artists are also exploring the translation of history, travel, and visual tourism, through various modes of representation.
