Captain’s Log: An Installation in a Box by Katie Loesel
This installation in a box contains twenty-seven cards one can arrange at their own discretion to recreate Katie Loesel’s Captain’s Log.
The original Captain’s Log is a 7-foot installation of monoprints (oil-based intaglio inks on Johannot paper) that was completed in 2007. The abstracted landscapes map a journey through an imaginary utopia of land, sky, and water.
In addition to reproductions of the prints on cards, the box contains instructions for recreating the installation on their own wall, bulletin board, rear car window, bathroom stall door, or other appropriate space.
Katie Loesel grew up on Lake Erie in Erie, Pennsylvania. She is a 2007 graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio, where she received a BFA in Printmaking. Upon graduation, she received the Agnes Gund Traveling Scholarship Award. She now lives in Boston. She has exhibited her work at the Bundy Center for the Arts in Waitsfield and at Kasini House in Burlington. Katie is a printmaker, bookmaker, drawer, crafter, cyclist, and sailor, amongst other things.
Loesel was the winner of the 2008 Vermont Contemporary Art Annual Cover Award, and the publication of this “installation in a box” is part of that award. The Vermont Contemporary Art Annual showcases the work of Vermont artists. Each year, the publishers select one artist to be featured on the cover. That artist is given a publishing contract.
This nifty multiple is a great way to bring installation art into your home or office.
