Two Photographic Works by CB Adams in Interpretations II Exhibition


Qwerky Photography, the illegitimate brainchild of photographer and writer CB Adams, announces that the artist has two photographic works on display now at the Columbia Art League (CAL), 207 South Ninth Street, Missouri Theatre Center for the ArtsColumbia, MO 65201-4817. The show will be up until October 31st. Adams' photographs are "ofBonesofDreamsofMemories," taken with a vintage Russian Kiev 80 120 film camera, and "Trodden," taken with a vintage 120 format Diana camera on Chinese Shanghai 120 film that was processed in Caffenol, a homemade film developer made from cheap instant coffee, vitamin C, and washing soda. A slightly different version of "Trodden" was included in the recent Somerville Toy Camera Festival in the Boston area. That photograph was titled "Bhru #17."


According to CAL Executive Director Diana Moxon, "Interpretations II: A marriage of 40 visual artists and 40 literary artists, each submitting one work of her/his own choice with any theme. Then, an art swap: Each visual artist receives a work from one of the writers; each literary artist receives an artwork. The task for each artist and writer: to create a second work of art or piece of writing, which is his or her interpretation of the other artist’s work. The result: A show of 80 artworks and 80 pieces of writing. The aim of the show: A reminder that we all see the world differently; our interpretations of the world around us are uniquely ours. How will each artist interpret the other artist’s work? How will the viewer interpret the written words and artworks in the show?"
