spacer.gif ARCH Development Corporation, through its "Annual Honfleur Social Arts Initiative," announces its 2011 Winter/Spring Artists in Residence. From February through early May 2011 visiting artists, Khanh H. Le and Kathryn C. Zazenski will be actively creating new works centric to the lives, people and places in the Anacostia community. Expect to see the artists interacting with the residents and businesses as part of their residency.

Ms. Zazenski creates works inspired by touch, sound, relationships and communication, examining how these things help to establish a sense of place. Specifically she will be engaging with the community on a "Memory Mapping" project. This project is an on-going work which began in Fei Jia Cun, a village on the fringe of Beijing, China. The "Memory Map" project illustrates various forms of information collected as a way for Ms. Zazenski to come to a better understanding of her environment.

Using photography as a basis for his work, Khanh H. Le will explore the complex issue of his identity within the Anacostia community. Le says, "Photographs are evidence, but their interpretation is what makes them important. When people ask me about my identity it is almost like it is fixed or permanent, but it is always in flux with my environment." He intends to use this as a platform for discussion with the community for his project, while also looking at the notion of public and private identities and how they overlap with one another.

This program is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
