Nesting (2016), a collaborative exhibit with Erin LaBonte, will be on display from March 7 through April 8 at the Founder's Hall Art Gallery, located at UW-Manitowoc, 705 Viebahn St.
"Nesting" is an exhibit of photographs LaBonte shot of Lindemann and her son, Oliver, in their home in Cleveland, Wis. The images emphasize patterns, colors and light while documenting, from an outsider’s perspective, the everyday interactions between mother and child. LaBonte’s intimate series of mother and son is accompanied by Lindemann’s poetry.
“The poems in this series meditate on the way a new mother and son interact in the space of their home," Lindemann said. "Some of the poems respond directly to Erin’s photos, and others are more grounded in the very intense, emotionally powerful experiences of early motherhood."
A short poetry reading/reception is scheduled for 6 to 7 p.m. on March 30 at the gallery.
