Deconstructing The Sayre Barn: Photographs by Ulf Skogsbergh – Opening, Saturday, 12 June 2014

“Deconstructing the Sayre Barn: Photographs by Ulf Skogsbergh” is a full on installation of photographs that examine the Sayre Barn, part of the Southampton Village Historical Museum.

The opening takes place Saturday, June 14 from 4-6 PM at the Barn at the Rogers Mansion Museum Complex, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton, Southampton Village.

"The restoration of the Sayre Barn, is a major project undertaken by the Museum," says Skogsbergh, an internationally known photographer and musician/composer who lives on the East End of Long Island.  "The Barn is reopening to the public with an installation of my large-scale photographs relating to the barn and farm tools, once housed in the barn."

Skogsberg notes that the space is enormous but his photographs which measure up to 13 feet for this exhibition will likely fill it: "Right now I have two 4x13 ft to finish but but I'm showing 32 prints  in all – and most are about 48 x 60 inches - with eight photos 8 ft long or larger."  The artist's enormous super high resolution features are collected widely in Europe, particularly Switzerland.

According to the Museum: "The 1825 Sayre Barn was under reconstruction for one year and will reopen with an exhibit of photographs of the Sayre Barn taken before the barn was dismantled. Mr. Ulf Skogsbergh specializes in highly-detailed, large format photography (20-plus feet in length).  His works are well-known and collected throughout Europe."

The exhibition will remain open through October 18, 2014.
