‘Context of Unraveling (continued)’ by Carrie Burr
The Louisville Photo Biennial continues with local photographer Carrie Burr’s solo show “Context of Unraveling (continued).” Across fantastically large photographs, Burr invites the viewer into serene environments that convey a sense of narrative. It’s over blankets of white that you will find closeness with skin, fur and natural elements that normally would be out of place in such a crisp environment, but here they are supposed to be questioned and evaluated. To me, it’s evident that Burr’s work has a kinship with the films of Stanley Kubrick. They share many of the same design elements that make the viewer question what is going on outside the frame and to really evaluate what Burr has chosen for us to see.
