• An exhibition featuring the photography of Deborah Orloff and Kris Sanford will open on Tuesday at Vincennes University’s Shircliff Gallery of Art. The exhibition will run through March 20 and admission is free. An artist talk and reception will take place with Orloff and Sanford at 11 a.m. on Thursday at the gallery.
“Memory and Imagination” is a two-person exhibition that examines memory and connections through the recontextualization of family photos and found snapshots. Orloff, a professor and associate chair of the Department of Art at the University of Toledo, transforms forgotten family photos into cultural artifacts, while Sanford brings a contemporary rereading to old photographs to address sexuality and relationships.
Orloff’s series, “Elusive Memory,” reveals the complexity of memory and its relationship to photography. Specifically how discarded family photographs become stand-ins for all of our perceptions of personal history. The resulting large-scale photographs make commonplace objects monumental and emphasize their unique details. In their final representation, these banal objects become simulacra of loss and speak to the ephemeral nature of memory.
In “Through the Lens of Desire,” Sanford, an associate professor at Central Michigan University, creates implied narratives using snapshots from the 1920s-1950s.Vernacular photographs from that era were created as private keepsakes and the unselfconscious intimacy they depict feels authentic and relatable. As modern viewers, we witness personal moments that were never intended to be public. In her skillfully selected imagery Sanford contemplates hidden relationships in vernacular photographs seen through gestures, touch, and proximity.
The Shircliff Gallery of Art is located in the Shircliff Humanities Center, 130 E. Harrison St. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
• In February 1779, George Rogers Clark’s forces marched across the Illinois country and flooded Wabash River to Vincennes to challenge Henry Hamilton and the British Army at Fort Sackville.
