Welcometo theWOUNDED HOMEExhibitionJuly 22, 2013-January 20, 2014Lloyd Library and Museum pre-sents Wounded Home, an exhibition that hasbeen in the making since 2011, when guest artcurator, Kate Kern, was invited to tackle thetopic of the Civil War for the 150th Commemo-rative four-year cycle.The resulting exhibition, WoundedHome, takes its inspiration from a Victorianera parlor ravaged by the losses and upheavalof Civil War America. Combining the vocabu-laries of an iconic household interior, includingVictorian customs of mourning and grief, withtext and images from the Lloyd’s collection ofCivil War resources, each artist has created afacet of a poignant and disturbing room-within-a-room in the Lloyd’s gallery space. Artists,Mary Jo Bole, Debbie Brod, Jenny Fine, SaadGhosn, Celene Hawkins, Kate Kern, and AlicePixley Young, have been meeting regularlysince November 2011 and have created newworks specifically for this exhibition. Lloydmaterials used by the artists during their re-search are also on display, inviting visitors tomake connections between the exhibition andthe sources of inspiration from the Lloyd’s vastcollection.MARY JO BOLEwww.maryjobole.comI created wallpaper that consists of squareimages printed in multiples on a Vandercookpress. These surround a larger painting depict-ing a family tree. This central image meshesmany aspects of my research without explana-tion like the depicted image of an elephant;troops called going into battle as “meeting theelephant” for example. The paper has bits ofbark within it, enhancing a quality of impend-ing chaos or decay.DEBORAH BRODwww.debrod.comMy first thought when invited to draw from theLloyd Library’s rich collection of botanically-based books for this Civil War/domestic parlorexhibit: medicinal plants for healing. But as Idelved into the root causes of the war,slavery took center stage: this antique tableappears wounded, or at least fragile, with oneleg broken. And the table covering won’t layflat: as if turned inside out, a tangle of viscera,full of stories, fully exposed, and vulnerable.JENNY FINEjennyfine.comUpon discovering early illustrations of skindiseases in Dr. Walker’s scrapbooks and ThePhotographic Atlas of Skin Diseases, I became in-terested in making contemporary renderingsof diseases associated with the Civil War. I wasdrawn to these early medical illustrations forboth their haunting presence and the processin which they were made. Inclined to engagein a similar form of creating, I photographedthree contemporary individuals. Drawing withgraphite and watercolors, I hand-altered thefinal photographs.SAAD GHOSNBoth my pieces address the issue of war andthat, irrespective of their stated motives, warsalways have other real, hidden motives thatdeal with politics, control, domination, greed,profit… Sadly, the result of every war is aheavy human toll. One of the pieces, an installa-tion, refers to the underestimated 620,000 indi-viduals killed during the Civil War; the other, aphotomontage, merges images of Civil War in-juries and destruction with religious iconogra-phy, with the Lloyd Library providing the im-ages of the wounded as a starting point.CELENE HAWKINSwww.hawkinsandhawkins.bizMy piece explores the tragedy of industry andwealth built on the subjugation of the Africanpeoples, and the attitudes embodied by D.A.Tompkins statement: "The white man loves tocontrol and loves the person willing to be con-trolled by him. The negro readily submits to themaster hand, admires and even loves it. Left tohis own resources and free to act as his mind oremotions dictate, no man can foresay what he isliable to do."KATE KERNwww.katekern.comI came across the multi-volume set of the Medi-cal and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellionwhile searching for inspiration for another pro-ject.The photographs and prints of wounds andwounded soldiers stayed with me, graduallydeveloping into an idea of using the deceptivelylush bullet entrance and exit wound image asupholstery on a period piece of furniture. Theresulting Our Nation Mourns: Wounded Setteeplaces the horror of war inside the home of anation fighting itself.ALICE PIXLEY-YOUNGalicepixleyyoung.comMy research focuses on looking and longingand the tension created when one is confined toa specific place, role or identity. A cast glasspicture frame with video projection will showlong, meditative views of the Ohio River thatshift visually from the river’s Kentucky andOhio sides, marking departure and arrivalpoints for escaping slaves. Separately, an in-stallation of cast glass lace collars mark the ab-sence of the figure, and also become a signifierof identity and place.
