PLURAL - Amanda Carmer
October 24 - November 21, 2014
From October 24 - November 21, the Calvin College Department of Art and Art History is proud to present "PLURAL," an exhibition of photographic work by Amanda Carmer at the (106) South Division Gallery.
Plural is a series of portraits and photograms that negotiate the duplicitous nature of family relationships, characterized by the long-term psychological and physical struggles of a single family member. The photograms explore the surface of photo paper and film itself with the use of organic materials—mostly foods like tomatoes, onions, and herbs, but sometimes whole plant systems—to engage different narrative strategies. Carmer notes, "I'm interested in how stories are told and how that process of telling affects the audience's interpretation of the story."
