„The Medicine Show“ er röð ljósmynda sem upphaflega voru unnar í Greensboro í Norður-Karólínu í mars 2022. Lagður var spírall yfir Greensboro og nágrenni, með ysta punkt í iðnaðarbænum High Point og miðpunkt í miðbænum og tökustaði á fimm hvarpunktum spíralsins þar á milli. Verkin voru unnin í flutningabíl sem er sérútbúinn fyrir myndlist, „The Art Truck“. Á hverjum þeirra sjö daga sem verkefnið tók var afrakstur dagsins fluttur í sýningarsal í miðborginni, „Greensboro Project Space“, og sett upp. Verkefnið var unnið í samstarfi við myndlistardeild Greensboro College of Art, en nemendur þaðan unnu eigin ljósmyndir út frá hugmynd verkefnisins og settu upp í bland við myndir mínar á sýningunni.

Verkin eru öll kýanótýpur, bláprent, tónuð með tannínsýrulausn. Útgáfan á sýningunni í Greensboro var afar tilraunakennd og áferð verkanna mótaðist af erfiðum aðstæðum á vettvangi. Eftir sýninguna hef ég unnið hluta verkann í tveimur mismunandi stærðum sem ég kem til með að þróa frekar síðar.

“The Medicine Show” is a series of photographs originally made in Greensboro, North Carolina in March 2022. A spiral was laid out over Greensboro and the surrounding area, with the outermost point in the industrial town of High Point and a central point in the city center, and shooting locations at five points of the spiral between. The works were created in a U-Haul vehicle specially equipped for art, “The Art Truck”. During each of the seven days the project took, the day’s output was taken to a downtown gallery, the Greensboro Project Space, and installed. The project was done in collaboration with the Fine Arts Department of Greensboro College of Art, whose students created their own photographs based on the idea of the project and installed them in combination with my photos at the exhibition.

The works are all cyanotypes, blue prints, toned in a tannic acid solution. The version at the exhibition in Greensboro was very experimental and the texture of the works was shaped by the difficult conditions on the ground. After the exhibition, I have done parts of the work in two different sizes, which will continue later.
