In his exhibition, Crossing the Farther Shore, acclaimed Vietnamese American artist Dinh Q. Lê presents thousands of photographs of Southern Vietnam taken before and during the Vietnam War. Lê considers these images as an important document of Southern Vietnam that has escaped the Northern Vietnamese Communist government’s systematic effort to erase the pre-1975 existence of the South. The photographs also serve as a counter narrative to the images the world saw of Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The hand-stitched structures allude to the mosquito nets under which people sleep in Vietnam, creating what Lê calls a “sleeping, dreaming memory of Vietnam.” On view at Rice Gallery April 10 - August 28, 2014. Original score by Mark Walley. Learn more about the exhibition at http://www.RiceGallery.org. Learn more about the filmmakers at http://www.WalleyFilms.com.

            Photography is unlike other arts in at least one respect: it is seldom entirely within the control of the artist, and almost always represents a collaboration with chance. This keeps the meaning of the photograph in flux; it is changed by successive generations of viewers. Photography is a broad continuum of which self-consciously artistic expression occupies only a small portion, but across which artistic realization can potentially be found at any point at any time.

              Photo albums have served first and foremost as aids to oral story telling where the complier was herself present to place context on the images. However, when the photo album is separated from its author, we are left with silent fragments, a book of illustrations without a story. Through her film what are we to make, artist Tara Ernst attempts to reconstruct the narrative of her fragmented ancestry through a creative reworking of her great-grandmother’s family photo album. Part auto biography, part family archive, what are we to make questions the ways in which the family photo album frames female identities while reflecting upon memory in relationship to vernacular photography. It also places emphasis on the specific experience of women who have traditionally served as the collectors, archivists and story tellers of the family photo album for the past century and whose voices are re-awoken here through the shared experience of mental illness, isolation and motherhood.
