PROJECT FEATURE: ‘SOMEWHERE BETWEEN NOW AND NEVER’ BY JESSICA RENZELMAN

Somewhere Between Now & Never – Jessica Renzelman

In Somewhere Between Now & Never, I use my own photographs and found images to construct an open, non-linear pseudo-documentary narrative based off of the Midwest within an institutional, true-crime-meets-museum-archive installation. It exists somewhere between a fictional and real place, influenced but not entirely created within the Midwest. The non-linear story takes place sometime between now, the past and never. Photographs are created or collected within and outside of Missouri, intentionally using a variety of technologies & processes (digital, black & white, gum bichromate, etc), spanning decades of photographic evolution and histories. Viewers are invited to wander through these photographs, alongside video, text and audio to investigate the temporality, isolation, and religion of the Midwest, along with the multifaceted nature of memory and archives. Images of banal, everyday things become evidence, with destruction and loss lying just outside the frame. Viewers are encouraged to piece together their own narratives and conclusions from the disparate elements.
