After appearing on the collective art world radar in the MoMA, NY, Emerging Photography exhibition (2013), American artist Lisa Oppenheim has now been recognized with her first major solo exhibition and monographic publication, cataloging a decade of practice. By exposing and re-exposing archival material, Oppenheim bridges past and present by introducing new meaning to historical images, often resulting in film and photographic projects. Using textiles to produce images and images to produce textiles, Oppenheim inserts punch cards of randomly chosen historical textile images into a traditional Jacquard loom, intentionally “jamming” the machine to produce unusual results. One could define this non-narrative, photo process based work as an archaeology of time and visual culture. Texts by Karen Archey, Angie Keefer, Lisa Oppenheim and Christian Rattemeyer.
