This installation, by photo-based artist Karina Kraenzle, presents a collection of photographs in a room – the setting of which has been loosely constructed via visual “instruction” from the photographs themselves – albeit with some artistic licence. Strange Weather is a rumination on the space between surfaces – past and present, seen and unseen, remembered and forgotten – a small study of unpredictable systems.
Karina Kraenzle began her studies in photography in 1989 at the San Francisco Art Institute. She currently combines various media with original and found photography. Her subject matter, more often than not, is photography itself – its relationship to time and memory, and its unique ability to construct certain fictions and uncertain truths.
Over the last few years, Karina’s work has been exhibited at Ottawa Art Rental and Sales Gallery, The Ottawa School of Art Gallery, Galerie Jean-Claude Bergeron, La Petite Mort Gallery, Cube Gallery, Exposure Gallery, L’Imagier Gallery, A.W.O.L. Gallery, SPAO, Festival X and Contact Festival. She is also an active member of the artist collective, Blink. Her work is currently represented in Ottawa by Cube Gallery. www.artengine.ca/kraenzle
The artist would like to thank the City of Ottawa for supporting this project.
Strange Weather is presented in conjunction with Festival X. http://www.festivalx.ca/home.html
