Kristin Posehn: Architectures

A house made of air and distance and echoes 

An exhibit of works collected by the Center for Art + Environment is on view from February 16 – May 21, 2017.

Posehn – who is a sculptor, writer, and photographer – repositions architecture in the physical world so we can consider the relationships between built and natural environments, between art and architecture, between the real and the fictional. Posehn’s archive materials are part of the Center for Art + Environment’s investigation into the relationships among built and natural and virtual environments. – William Fox, Director

Boy With Frog

BoyWithFrog_TheWhiteReview 

My short story Boy With Frog (titled after the Charles Ray sculpture of the same name) was published by The White Review in August, 2016. The story revolves around a young woman, her grandfather and a sculpture. As her grandfather’s health declines, the sculpture becomes a catalyzing presence in their thoughts and conversations. Boy With Frog is a meditation on mortality, art, videogames, and the intimate connection between mind and body. Read it here here.

“I think people will have said enough to you about serious things, and so I am going to talk to you about what I feel is valuable, and that people think too little of, about cheerfulness and, something that is part of it as well, not being afraid about problems in life, but finding a natural solution for them.” Sophie Taeuber-Arp, 1937
