Auto Bios Grapho is a project consisting of photographs and sculptures acting as visual dissections of the concept of the autobiography: time, body, space. The idea of this work is derived from poet Anne Carson's novel Autobiography of Red. In this novel the main character works on his autobiography without using text. His ultimate medium will be photography.
Joline Uvman builds her work by playing with words and etymological meanings. The word photography is to mean light (photo) and writing or drawing (graphy) if reading it from its origins. The function of a mathematical graph is to measure or show a development.
Auto Bios Grapho will be exhibited in three different installations over the course of a year starting with Grapho, followed by Bios and Auto.
In the first exhibition Grapho, drawings of graphs have gone through several photographic processes. From drawn, to scanned and lastly photo graphed with a medium format camera. These graphs have a constant curve and no values, which gives a static impression — the functions of these graphs are hidden in the notion of time.
Joline Uvman works with installation, sculpture, text and photographic processes. In her work she seeks to grasp senses of time and affect by merging various types of languages: the material, the written, the pictorial and the mathematical.
