Flat Granny and Me: A Suspension of Disbelief
April 29 – June 6, 2014
Dublin Arts Council gallery
7125 Riverside Dr., Dublin, Ohio
opening reception Tuesday, April 29, 6 to 8 p.m. 

The role of photographs as mementos of and stand-ins for absent loved ones receives a moving and thought-provoking 21st-century update in the exhibition Jenny Fine - Flat Granny and Me: A Suspension of Disbelief. Inspired by the “Flat Daddies” project — life-sized photos of military members that help families cope during deployments –- Fine poses and interacts with a cardboard cutout made from images she took of her grandmother during the last decade of her grandmother’s life. Through still images from the local artist’s ongoing Flat Granny and Me series, tender gestures and everyday activities coexist with odd and mysterious rituals, as the artist imbues these images with a strong sense of dream-like performance.

Jenny Fine - Flat Granny and Me: A Suspension of Disbelief opens with an artist’s reception Tuesday, April 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin. The exhibition will remain on view through June 6. The reception and the exhibition are free of charge. Gallery hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I’ve been pulling late nights in the studio getting ready for Wounded Home, an installation in collaboration with Mary Jo Bole, Deborah Brod, Celene Hawkins, Saad Goshn, Kate Kern, and  Alice Pixley YoungWounded Home takes its inspiration from a Victorian era parlor ravaged by the losses and upheaval of Civil War America.

Upon discovering The Photographic Atlas of Skin Diseases among the vast collection of medical books in the Lloyd Library, I became interested in making contemporary renderings of diseases associated with the Civil War.
