This week, artist Patricia Voulgaris gives us a glimpse into her studio practice. Her work is currently on view as part of our Ctrl+P, a project inspired by the hundreds of photographs we see on blogs and online galleries. Started in January 2011, Ctrl+P provides further exposure for new artists we find while searching the web, exhibiting a small selection of one person's work every two months, taking the pictures offline and putting them on the wall.
"I'm a photographer from New York that uses photography and video to explore notions of memory and violence through self portraiture. I perform in front of the camera using memory as a basis to relive past experiences. These staged and constructed images attempt to emulate fragmented memories."
Patricia Voulgaris graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2013. Her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions including Aperture Foundation, Rubber Factory, Red Hook Labs, and Baxter Street at CCNY. Her photographs have been featured in publications and blogs such as Dear Dave Magazine. Der Greif, Vice, PDN, The British Journal of Photography, and the New York Times Lens Blog. She is the recipient of the Lucie Foundation and Aaron Siskind grant.
