At Ramon’s Tailor
Artist Tanja Geis will be in residence at Ramon’s Tailor collecting lost and discarded objects from nearby Tenderloin streets. She will be using what she finds to make a series of collagraphs—prints made from a plate collaged with different textures. This work will be produced in conjunction with Kala Art Institute’s Artist-in-Residence Program.
The intention of Sidewalk Collagraphs is to be present with that which we are usually indifferent to if not repulsed by. The project is guided by a hunch that in attending to and formally reimagining the discarded, the lost, and the residual of city life, the artist might offer some intimacy with and perhaps understanding of the ecology of the neighborhood.
