Description

Corner Piece, Freeman House
2009
Photograph, silkscreen on glass
43 1/4 x 65 x 1/4" OVERALL
Veronika Kellndorfer is concerned with the physical and social construction of urban space and how she personally experiences it. She originally chose the medium of painting to express these themes but later switched to photography subsequently transforming her photographs into silk-screen prints on man-sized, reflective glass panels. This method of display offers the viewer different ways of experiencing the area photographed, as well as the location where the work is presented and their mutual interaction. In this work, the artist has photographed the Samuel Freeman House, designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Eighty years after construction Kellndorfer secures photographs of the living room of this former residence documenting the urban landscape of roadways and palm trees.
