In conjunction with her exhibition, Subarctic Phase, artist Karen Zalamea and Katie Belcher will discuss this site-specific photographic practice, the role of failure and risk in experimental work, and how this project sits within Karen's larger practice.
Karen Zalamea's art practice has developed through the lens of many disciplines, mainly photography, video, and installation. Her process involves a hands-on material engagement with image-making, from photographing studio constructions to the material handling of photographic objects. She is interested in the possibilities of the photographic surface and the subsequent relationship between its object manipulation and its optical representation.
