Drawings by Victoria Goro-Rapoport

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 28, 2014
'As an artist and human being, I am interested in exploring the precarious connection between natural and man-made spaces, and the men and women who inhabit them. Part of my artistic career was dedicated to set design.

The Imagined Worlds of Gregory Crewdson

Photography // Sunday, April 27, 2014
When Gregory Crewdson creates one of his photographs, it is truly a Hollywood production. Each photograph requires days of location scouting usually in western Massachusetts.

And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back.
