Exhibition | Dan Estabrook: Wunderkammer
Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston for “Dan Estabrook: Wunderkammer.” The work of Dan Estabrook oscillates between image and object & back again. Using antiquated forms of photography, such as salt prints & tintypes, Estabrook examines the objecthood of photography & its ability to represent the truth. He often combines multiple tintypes or adds metal to his images, further commenting on photography’s connection to reality. His sculptural works become recreations of his photos, further blurring the line between image & object. Interested in the studio as a site for fabrication, his sleight of hand in creating still life tableaus asks viewers to reconsider the “why.” The galleries are open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursdays. Closed on Sundays.
