From March 30th, The David Klein Gallery hosts Corine Vermeulen‘s solo exhibition  Kodak and the Comet.  The exhibition focuses on two new bodies of work: Kodak and the Comet, large scale abstractions incorporating her earlier Detroit landscape photography, and Nachtwerk, a series of portraits and objects shot on a recent stay in Colombia.

“I am intervening retrospectively in my own image making, doing something different with the images of the past. This occurs during a time of ‘revival’ in Detroit when different processes are deployed over the same terrain, interfering with the historical ground.” Corine Vermeulen
