August 18th, Daytona Beach: Exhibition “IN REVIEW: WAR” with Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins & Christopher Sims

Southeast Museum of Photography
IN REVIEW: WAR

A group exhibition featuring the work of Ed Grazda, Louie Palu, Lucian Perkins & Christopher Sims.

Exhibition dates: August 18 to October 2, 2011

“After ten years of turmoil, unceratinty and conflict we confront the anniversary of the events of September 11th.  What has happened since then, and how have photographers helped shape our understanding of these complex events and the circumstances surrounding them?  Four photographers and four dramatically different records are presented alongside images made at the actual site of what has become known as “ground zero” on that September day in 2001.

Each photographer has created a unique archive that powerfully articulates their own particular understanding of the forces in play in these events.  Drawing from the fields of portraiture, documentary and reportage photography; each series forms an authentic and engaging facet of the not-yet-complete archive of an elusive global conflict, and a series of wars that have not yet fully ended.”

An Artist’s Panel Discussion will be held on Friday, September 23, 2011 at 6:00 pm; reception to follow.

About the Exhibition:
Continues through May 29th, 2011

“These were landscapes and illustrations for a comfortable bourgeois sensibility. Nature as mere ornament; landscape as empty metaphor. Wilderness is hinted at here, but scrupulously drained of all its unruliness. Lost are the power, chaos and visceral energy of wild nature; substituted with a relaxed, sumptuous glowing landscape that appears to hold no threat, promise no disruption and undermine no feeling of security. Carefully placed trees, perfect blossoms, vertiginous cliffs, moonlit stillness wrapping the hushed land and picturesque peasants and yeomen laboring elegantly in the fields. Nothing breaks the spell in these disturbingly serene vistas. And yet they are so utterly false as to be, perhaps, a little disturbing. Lorna Bieber mines this territory for her imagery. Her finished pieces are ambiguous, spatially-complex, dream-like and redolent with memory. They excavate an ersatz nature that appears impenetrable, ambiguous, remote, detached and unknowable. A receding nature ever pulling away from our grasp.”
