Midnight Sun, an exhibition of never-before-seen work by Vrba, takes the exploration of the creative life to an extreme. Most of the images featured were, at one time, "failed prints" and trials that Vrba kept as materials for other projects. Over time, the chemicals on these unwashed, fiber-based prints deteriorated and changed the images in uncanny ways. Vrba then treated the images to stop further deterioration. Much of the distortion looks as though it was planned, but each unique change occurred by chance. Midnight Sun is a meditation on the relationship between the artist, her artwork, and the mysterious origin of creativity.
This event is part of the Click! Triangle Photography Festival.
