The title breaking glass is based on a German expression, that dates back to 16 year hundred where the fragility of human luck was compared to the fragility / breakabilty of glass. Somebody breaking too much glass means being a trouble-maker: interrupting everybody else’s peace or illusion

As a child, people would say to me “you are breaking too much glass”, or “don’t break too much glass

These images are about the relationship between myself and my upbringing in Germany. They examine the influences of cultural conditioning as well as the specific, family conditioning I received through my parents, who were (of course) also conditioned themselves. Household objects play an important role, as most of our family life was spent much more in the kitchen or doing other  house work. These  objects, (the tulips, the coffee cup, the iron) are related to strong German rituals of daly life, as I experienced it in my childhood…
 
BREAKING GLASS  is a way to make peace with my past, and to come to a deeper understanding of the emotions and conditioning I experienced in order to let go.

ICP-Bard Group MFA Show “The Ties That Bind” at Baxter St, July 1-30


The Ties That Bind

Curated by Charlotte Cotton

Please join us for our group exhibition The Ties That Bind at The Camera Club of New York Baxter St next July 8th.

The Ties That Bind is a collaboration and conversation between the ICP-Bard’s MFA class of 2016. Hailing from eight different countries, we employ photographic methodologies to challenge and investigate our intimate bonds and personal boundaries.

We have shared common interests that surface in the work and explore our subjective truths, family histories, memories and the impact of trauma.

We ask you to examine what is often overlooked or silenced and held in the peripheries of our experience. We invite you to engage with and find connections between us and the world at large.             

Opening Reception: July 8, 2016 | 6 – 8 pm

The opening reception will also include two performances to begin at 7 pm: Moving Images by Minny Lee and lost, lost, lost: you, you, you by Martha Naranjo Sandoval.

On view: July 1st – July 30th

Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 12 – 6 pm
