Julie Mehretu Berliner Plaetze, 2008/09 Ink and Acrylic on Canvas, 304,8 x 426,7 cm Commissioned Work by the Deutsche Bank in consultation with the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation for the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin
I was interested in Mehretu's works that deal with "erasure, decay, and liminality". As with portions of my photographs posted thi week, a portion of the image is erased -- leaving her canvases in "an indeterminate state". Interesting, no? Wish I could go? Yes.

I was interested in two ideas explored in the work of Straub and Hulliet: a) transformation of a work from one medium to an other, such as literature, painting and music into film, as a process of re-reading, re-inventing or readjusting of meaning, and b) the fact that the artists categorically refused to offer any kind of interpretation that might ease or facilitate access to the artwork or so-called original. Interesting in light of our Artist's Statement project, no?
