Curated by Robert Lyons, Director of the Hartford MFA program

Generously hosted by C/O Berlin, the International Limited-Residency MFA in Photography program at Hartford Art School presents Fruit Taped to Trees, a pop-up exhibition comprised of work by ten photographers who are currently pursuing their Master of Fine Arts degree. The exhibition uses a poem written by Anna Moschovakis as a catalyst for interpretation of how a mundane encounter can shape our experience of time and subconsciously drift our perspective.

I believe there is a past perfect tense I’ve forgotten.”

The collective photographs raise questions about linear existence and how memory blurs our perspective of time. Fruit Taped to Trees plays with the shifting tenses of past, present, and future as a response to Moschovakis’ play on causality and philosophical musings. As Moschovakis invites the reader to reevaluate their relationship to time and the personal pursuit of perfection, some photographs respond to the ceaseless undertaking of living in the present while others, examine the alteration of memories through physical repair or destruction. The picking of ripe fruit cannot be undone, similar to our hollow attempts to revise history. Yet, there is always the anticipation of new growth, and rising expectations, for life defies the ephemeral nature of time.

Curated by Robert Lyons, Director of the Hartford MFA program, this exhibition will include works by Chantal Anderson, Dean Berner, Rodrigo Guttiérez, Jenica Heintzelman, Erin Hoffstetter, Jiwoong Jang, Jenny Sae Un Kim, Juliana Novello, Dillon Burns Roberts, and Carolina Saez.
