After Krieghoff [Centre 3]

After Krieghoff

Ingrid Mayrhofer
January 4 - January 31, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, January 12 – 7:00pm - 10:00pm

This exhibition represents a studio preview of a larger project in progress. The works included here represent summer with a still image, and winter with a video loop. Both pieces require stereoscopic viewing glasses for a 3D effect.

“After Krieghoff” comprises a series of videos and still photographs in four seasons. The photomontage imagery combines my own photographs of landscapes and objects with painted skies appropriated from Krieghoff. The trees portrayed (on Hahnemühle paper) feature a knitted nylon rope touque, red in summer and bleached over the seasons. The animals coming into the video landscape are photographs of plastic toys designed in Germany and made in China.

The series responds to the ambiguity of the photographic record, adjusting the landscape much like Krieghoff did through genre painting. My goal is to ruminate on perceptions of place, on objects subject to change, on rendered reality, notions of veracity, staged moments, authenticity and appropriation, as well as on the ecology of forest management. I intend the imagery to build on the anxieties of romanticism, the effect of industrialization on the natural and social environment, and to resonate with current sentiments at a time of accelerated change to our mode of production. The project furthers my exploration of the intersections between culture and nature, seeking a common visual ground in blurred fields between images borrowed from art history, nature photography, craft and technology.

High School Musical Onstage [Hamilton Theatre Inc]

High School Musical Onstage (Youth Production)

SHOW DATES: February 16-25, 2018

Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on HTI's stage! Troy, Gabriella and the students of East High must deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.

It's the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes find their cliques, recount their vacations and look forward to the new year. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. They cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical that is being led by Ms. Darbus. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well. Disney's High School Musical is fun for the whole family.
