Kline utilizes iconic cultural markers to trace history and human experiences in this photograph of an electric chandelier suspended from a tent post in which subtle traces of tape along the tent's seams are evident. These white tents are often used in celebratory events, representing a culture of celebration and expectation amidst disappointment.
Moving through the world with a camera in hand and an eye for the absurd, photographer Katie Kline captures the mirth and spectacle of everyday life. Capturing the people and moments of her everyday life, her work reveals a portrait of the artist and her point of view. This point of view seems to get the joke that there is sense within the nonsense or that life is simple despite all humanity’s red tape. As she explains, she is moved “to collect universally stunning moments that identify the absurdity and pageantry of the spaces and objects created by human beings.”
Kline graduated with a BFA in Photography & Imagine from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2005 and is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Art at Columbia University. She has been exhibiting in New York since 2004 and her work is held in numerous private collections.
