Professor Andrea Eis has artwork in an exhibition opening in Detroit on Saturday, September 21, from 6-9 pm at Studio Couture, 1433 Woodward Avenue. The exhibition, titled "Doing It, and Doing It, and Doing It Well," is "an examination into the role of design not as a discipline, but instead a methodology in making, and its connection to craft and the studio practice. The show features twenty Detroit-based Cranbrook Academy of Art graduates, spanning nearly 40 years of the academy." The exhibition runs through September 29.
Andrea's installation piece represents the working process for her Antigone series. It includes typed and annotated lists of lines from Sophocles' Antigone, contact sheets of raw material, work prints, and finished works in a range of sizes – some clipped on the wall, others laid out under glass – as well as prints on fabric hung in the window. This physical embodiment of the methodology of studio practice combines the threads of fragmented textual translation and analysis of the play with a visual exploration of image, text, color and composition in the photographs.
