Fiction. Photography. Photographs by Olive Martin. In COMMON OBJECTS, the texts form a collection of exquisite, cinematic portraits, which gain their profundity and truth from real experiences and from plunging the depth of memory. The photographs of Olive Martin are collaborative images that join with the texts to tell a strange story. The images reenact scenes presented by the Thematic Aperception Test (TAT), a Jungian psychological exam developed in the 1940s at the Harvard Psychological Clinic, the images evoke the sketchy memories of madness. April Durham is a writer and visual artist and has exhibited in the US and Europe. She has an MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. Olive Martin is a photographer and filmmaker. The photographic series, "Apres le TAT," of which the images in COMMON OBJECTS are a part, is in the collection of the Artotheque Nantaise and was shown at Gallerie Jennifer Flay, Paris (2003) and the Musee de Beaux Arts de Pau (2004).
