“Imagine the simultaneous viewing / of multiple time…” Amar Kanwar
“…A desire to push through incomprehension and an irreplaceable will to make sense of fragments. . .” William Kentridge
“There can be a deliberate scrambling, or at least a heaping of many messages. Sometimes the messages are conflicting, and other times the language and the messages will be blunt and to the point. I routinely invite the reader to sort through the offerings and complete the thoughts, and to echo, amplify, or shrink from the feelings the work elicits. I tie the language to the visuals as an assist, and as a take-away gift.” Jenny Holzer
Think about how at least two of the works exhibited as “Fractured Narratives” to reflect on the following:
- Narrative (a story told by a narrator or conveyed by a narrative point of view, alternative to polemical or didactic approach)
- What are the stories of these works of art?
- Fracturing / fragmentation
- How do they break down narrative structure? What other forms of fracturing are on display?
- What meaning can you make from these works? How does the interplay of narrative and fracturing affect your experience of the pieces?
Make some observations/reflections/contextualizations in your post, then transform them into a discussion question to end your post with and to bring with you to class on Wednesday.
