Tease it Out
TEASE IT OUT: Two person show with Katey Crews
Redux Studios, Charleston, SC
Excerpt from Press:
The duo’s exhibit features meticulously crafted tapestries which were created with the help of a Jacquard loom. The images on each tapestry range from instantly-recognizable figures to vaguely-familiar pictures of middle-class American life.
Nartker’s pieces pull from more personal territory: home videos. Her representations of a smiling child, a neighborhood dotted with homes and cars, and a young girl’s shoes could be the childhood memories of virtually any American. What’s most impressive about this exhibition is the artists’ ability to seamlessly weave together two facets of the American psyche: personal memory and political memory.
