CentralTrak presents Tête-à-Tête: A Conversation between Reinhold Engberding and K. Yoland
CentralTrak will present the latest installment of its Tête-à-Tête series, focusing on CentralTrak artist-in-residence Reinhold Engberding (Germany) whose current solo exhibition Sudarium is on view in the gallery. Engberding will be in conversation with fellow CentralTrak artist-in-residence K. Yoland (United Kingdom), who will interview Engberding about his lengthy artistic practice and background. The discussion will touch on the impact of European culture on the artist's work and the logistical differences for working artists on either side of the Atlantic.
Engberding¹s current CentralTrak exhibit Sudarium is described as "a project of self-discovery." Engberding took a multitude of static images (portraits of young men from the World Wide Web) and used them as source material for this series of "self-portrait transformations." The resulting portfolio of 144 works is a meditation on the father-son-relationship.
