After recovering from a brutal attack that left him in a coma, Mark Hogancamp builds a miniature World War II-era town in his backyard and creates photographic stories of its intrigues. Panel discussion to follow film. Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery exihibit from September 22 – December 6, Mark Hogancamp: Women of Marwencol and Other Possible Histories Photographs and photo-series by an upstate New York artist who, as a mode of recovery from a violent assault and as an art practice, customizes and arranges 1/6 scale figures in miniature settings of his own design to tell an ongoing, looping, personal, epic story of conflict, loyalty, love, loss, and stockings. Hogancamp’s works address fundamental dynamics of narrative, fantasy, and fiction; the visual/formal elements of staging, composition, and point of view; and the personal, political, and iconographical aspects of war, gender, and empire.
