[02.01.12 - 22.01.12] Robin McGuire - USA


"My work questions and investigates the role that vernacular photography plays in the ways in which we remember people, places, and events. I am interested in the coming together of documentary and fiction to create a more active narrative of these memories and experiences".


Robin McGuire fra USA

Name: Robin McGuire

Nationality: American  

Homeland: USA

Town: Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Age: 25

How long are you resident? From January 2-22, 2011

Have you been in Trondheim before? No, this will be my first time in Norway, and my first time in Europe as well.

Do you wish to get in touch with somebody in Trondheim? I don’t know anybody in Trondheim yet, but I’m really looking forward to meeting everybody at LKV and to forming new friends and connections through this residency.

Is it something you look forward to…? I am really looking forward to the opportunity to immerse myself in a different city, culture, and landscape than that which I’m from, and I’m excited to see how that challenges and changes my work and my way of making work. I also look forward to the chance to explore and discover a new place!

About you work

Discipline: Photography and mixed media

Technique: Shooting 35mm film, collecting objects and materials, drawing and writing, utilising hand-applied photographic emulsion to print on drawing papers and other found objects, and creating pieces that are collaged together using all of these techniques...

Statement: My work questions and investigates the role that vernacular photography plays in the ways in which we remember people, places, and events. I am interested in the coming together of documentary and fiction to create a more active narrative of these memories and experiences.

Plans for your residency?

My interest in the role that photography plays in the ways in which we remember places and experiences has motivated the work that I want to make at LKV. With my camera I will investigate and form a relationship with the surrounding physical and cultural landscape of Trondheim. By photographing each experience, excursion, and sight of personal significance, and collecting documents and items along the way, I will acquire an archive of materials from which to piece together installations of my constructed memories. While vernacular photographs of places and events have the ability to distract from the memories that they attempt to preserve, I want to use photography to construct an active and modular form of remembering.

I will be having an exhibition at Babel from January 13-22.
