"In the process of being the medium for 'You are My Favorite Photograph' I have developed a ritual of collecting written memories from people of their favorite images. I then proceed to sleep on photo paper and the written description, waking in the morning and moving the paper from under the sheet to a light tight container. These documents are then developed, revealing various degrees of light that touched the photo paper over the course of a night. The wrinkles and creases are part of the work, as well as the variations in black and white, which occur from night to night. It becomes impossible not to search for forms and reasons for the random imprint of body and light on paper. The work is presented as a grid, unframed, so that the viewer can see the marks of the body.
I am drawn to photography's changeable relationship to documentation of fact, as it mimics our own desire and disillusionment in the quest for tangible and real experience. I am particularly interested in the absurdity, belief and intensity that yielded these early photographs. Photography became the evidential seam between the worlds, the body was the form through which the energy passed. The marks or traces that are left are an imprint of the desire of notstalgia. "

- Carrie Olson exhibited her work in a solo show at CUE Art Foundation in New York City January 22 - March 13, 2010. One of CUE’s most singular qualities is its pluralistic process. Solo exhibition artists are chosen by curators from across the country. These curators are selected by CUE’s rotating Curatorial Advisory Council. Resident artists are selected by a rotating panel of former studio residents. By including many voices in the selection process, CUE ensures that we provide a platform for a diverse range of voices and viewpoints.
