"GROENIGER [META]," an exhibition of contemporary prints and videosAugust 24, 2015 - September 18, 2015
Mānoa Campus, Art Building, The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa
"GROENIGER: [META]" highlights a collection of recent digital prints and videos created by Scott Groeniger. Many of the works were created during his 2014 residencies in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and in Beijing and Taiyuan, China.
Groeniger states, â€œI am interested in versions of iterations of prints. Versioning, in terms of the printed edition, produces multiple prints that are as visually similar as oneâ€™s process or skill will allow. I make versions of prints that are unique and sourced from other prints. Often the â€˜print,â€™ similar to the photographic negative, is the beginning of my process rather than the end. The prefix meta is used to reference an idea that is about its own categoryâ€”an X about X. In computational science, metadata is data about data. I am experimenting with printing prints made for reprinting the grammar of printmaking, or in effect, printing the metaprint.â€
All events are at The Art Gallery at the University of Hawaiâ€˜i at MÄnoa. Free and open to the public.
