ReConstruction

Vaudeville park is extremely pleased to present ReConstruction, a solo show by Time Out NY photographer Caroline Voagen Nelson.

ReConstruction is an exhibition of large-scale photomontages and photographs by Caroline Voagen Nelson. Inspired by urban spaces in flux, Nelson digitally reconstructs her photographs into biomorphic shapes. These shapes transcend the traditional edges of a photograph and become floating objects that reference sculpture and drawing. The environments documented are from Nelson’s various travels, where she observed spaces in transition. Her new work, On the Fence, is a collage inspired by the current Chilean student movement. During this on-going strike, students have stacked their chairs on school fences throughout Santiago as a form of protest against the for-profit education system. She removes the context of the Chilean landscape and focuses on the movement of the chair piles, which represents the fluctuating student movement. Portraits of the students on strike will also be on display as well as two other photomontages, Accretion and Power + Lines, which are thematically related to Nelson’s artistic process.
