For the past 25 years Jennifer Bolande (born 1957) has engaged in an intuitive form of conceptualism, using a variety of media including photography, sculpture, photo-objects, collage, film, installation and dance, to record or create visual anomalies. Photographer Sharon Lockhart describes her works as “photographic sculptures and sculptural photographs,” terms that are readily applied to Bolande’s best-known work, “Milk Crown”--a porcelain reproduction of Harold Edgerton’s famous 1956 photo of a milk splash. Landmarks is the first monograph on her work. Sequenced and co-designed by the artist, it carries the viewer into and through the sets of elements, themes and narratives that recur and dovetail throughout her work. In addition to images of her most significant works, the catalogue includes a wealth of resource material, providing a view of the artist’s process and fields of interest.
