Workshop: Kristine Potter – Reimagining Narratives II
8 October 2022 @ 10:00 - 9 October 2022 @ 18:00€350,00
Saturday, October 8 – Sunday, October 9 10am-6pm
In this two-day workshop, Kristine Potter will discuss how we achieve the ability to express ourselves in a photographic language that is both universal and personal, how we manage to incorporate different disciplines and modalities in the creative work, and how to proceed consistently with the editing and sequencing to reveal meaning. A series of exercises, drawing on the participants’ production and inspirations will complete the workshop.
Kristine Potter is the author of Manifest (TBW Books, 2018), exhibited in Arles as part of the exhibition ‘But Still, It Turns’ curated by Paul Graham, and on view at Micamera from October 8 to October 29.
In 2021, she was the winner of Grand Prix Images Vevey 2021 with the new body of work Dark Waters (the book is in the making).
Her black and white photographs invite us into the social worlds of deep America as she decodes, reframes, and recodes their conventional meanings. Intertwining the genres of landscape and portrait, in Potter’s work cliches of masculinity dissolve into idyllic reflection.
Potter is keenly attuned to how her subjects navigate and negate the archetypes and cliches of their cultures, and how photography has reinforced and distorted them in the popular imagination. In Potter’s portraits, we see individuals shaped, burdened, and empowered by the weight of their culture’s history, but sometimes the natural landscape itself becomes the main subject — not simply a backdrop or a stage but a numinous and self-contained archetype of itself.
Kristine Potter (1977) is an artist based in Nashville, Tennessee, whose work explores masculine archetypes, the American landscape, and cultural tendencies toward mythologizing the past. Her first monograph Manifest was published by TBW Books in 2018. Potter was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2018 and was awarded the Grand Prix Image Vevey for 2019-2020. Potter’s work is in numerous public and private collections including that of: The Georgia Museum of Art, 601 Artspace, Swiss Camera Museum, and Foundation Vevey.
