Tyanna Buie: Depictions


  • Memorial Union, Porter Butts Gallery 800 Langdon St Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

A photo-documentation of events, objects, and people from the artist's impermanent upbringing. These images are then transformed into a single iconic reference that emulates the function of memory, causing her to revive facts and recognize previous impressions from past events.

The artist states, "See n? Say, broken swing sets, class-mate photos, and Easter Sunday dress rehearsal, are photo-documentation of events, objects, and people from my impermanent upbringing. These images are then transformed into a single iconic reference that emulates the function of memory, causing me to revive facts and recognize previous impressions from past events. My experiences begin to manifest into epic and exaggerated accounts that are inconsistent from one event to another, in an attempt to re-affirm my identity."
