TARRAH KRAJNAK

For Marble Studies (2014) I returned to Peru and rented a studio in a crumbling mansion on the edge of a seaside town called Barranco. I stayed there for 3 months. This crumbling mansion had a history of its own– once a symbol of wealth and modernity it too had changed along with the city. In the 80's it was abandoned and then in the 90's it was the center of numerous unofficial rave parties with cracked marble pieces left under old chunks of broken wooden flooring.  I used the materials at hand– the marble became a surface to conduct my re-photographic experiments and the wood and glass were a way to call attention to the historical layering of time and place. Each day I roamed the markets and the streets of Lima collecting vernacular photographs and printed materials – using these materials in my studio I photographed ensembles of layered objects, texts and images, creating new images and new meanings.
