anne reinhardt at motor city

Image hosting by Photobucket

In case you missed motor city this week - here are some pictures of anne reinhardt's work. Large contour prints, some with colored in hair - and wood painted mouths that bubbled around the drawings. A video of the subject played also. The video was hard to make out with the noise of the bar but from what I gathered the exhibit was very personal and featured anne's mother in the drawings and video of recorded conversations.

Is anyone else noticing that motor city is becoming bigger and better? It seems like artists are taking bigger risks and setting up full installations instead of just drawings or studies.

This was a good something starting!
Yeah its good to see artists taking advantage of such an open opportunity. This work was very evocative for myself and I will be paying attention to see what evolves from it. Yes the technology of the Video did not allow for better sound I had noticed but it worked anyway.

Yeah, sorry guys. The original display of the video included headphones which helped to make out the sound when it was quiet or mumbled, but I was afraid that if there were headphones this time people wouldn't watch it as it would only allow for one person at a time to view it. I wanted to eliminate the akwardness of being the only person in a bar situation hogging the headphones for 15 minutes. It worked fine until about 10ish when everyone came in and there was added noise from the atmosphere. I would have turned it up had it been pointed out sooner. Oh well, the beauty of trial and error...anyway, thank for being interested and writing about me. I would be happy to answer any further questions or allow anyone who is interested to view the video in a more favorable situation. -Anne

Have you been to the DCA Gallery on Northline in Taylor? Perhaps it would be a place to go further with this work. Riversedge in Wyandotte is friendly to some new ideas but their space is sometimes difficult to deal with.
