Girls Girls Girls | Photographs & Video/Film & Handmade Books by Katrina del Mar

“I cast my girlfriends as gang girls, in leather and muscle cars. My armies of girls, in coordinated outfits, are ready to do battle for what they believe in: freedom, new turf, glitter, a good wave, a good ride, their girl gang, their favorite dog. I make films that are unselfconsciously queer, unapologetically feminist; riotous and robustly unkempt.”

AMP is very proud to bring Katrina del Mar to Provincetown with a significant part of an exhibition presented earlier this year at Participant Inc. in New York. Comprised of large-scale photographs, clusters of smaller prints, films, videos, and hand-made paperback books, GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS brings together an alluring and potent body of work, “as transcendent as it is transgressive.” – Carlo McCormick, Photograph Magazine. The exhibition at AMP is in tandem with the Provincetown International Film Festival.

Katrina writes about the paperback books: ”The idea that the words come from pictures: in a word, ekphrasis; is not only the description of a work of art, it is the description of my moment as a writer. The photographs hint at a story. The films become overburdened with narrative. Long after my films are finished I am writing the novels they should have been based on. I write modern myth set in urban environments. I make the work backwards. The book cover first, pulp fiction paperback style. Some are full, some are incomplete, some have yet to be written.”
