Vanitas, Fleeting Time, A cameraobscura workshop and inquiry with artist Amy-Claire Huestis
Date: Saturday March 5th
Time: 12pm to 5pm
Admission: $85
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

Participants will each build their own working portable camera obscura, and assemble their own Vanitas still life from the library collection  skeletons, books, time keepers, oddities. Through the screens of the camera obscuras, the group will consider, view, and sketch the constructed scene. Archeological inquiry rather than traditional art historical lecture, this workshop gives an entry point in which to experience visually the possibilities of the past.

A glimpse through the 17th century eye.  Be fascinated as you look into the little screen of your own portable cameraobscura  this hands-on workshop provides a lively experience with history in a hands-on exploration of optical media used in Western European Painting.

The group considers the Vanitas, a genre of 17th century Dutch painting. These are  still-lifes of iconographically charged objects that tell a story of fleeting time, the transience of life, and vain desires of wealth and pleasure.

Time is limited, time is passing, life is fleeting.

Amy-Claire Huestis works with experimental media in live performance and installation, and she also works with traditional forms of painting and drawing.  Using history as substance for experimentation, she finds poignant ways to unlock the mysterious.  Recently, her practice has included work with the camera obscura and the black mirror, traditional optical media used by Western painters and seers alike.  She recently made a re-invention of the magic lantern projector, outfitting it with cutting edge light technologies.
