Exhibit Opening Reception: Deconstructing the Sayre Barn: Photographs by Ulf Skogsbergh

“Deconstructing the Sayre Barn: Photographs by Ulf Skogsbergh” an exhibit of highly detailed oversize photographs featuring what Ulf Skogsbergh found to be the most fascinating phase of the reconstruction of the Southampton Historical Museum’s Sayre Barn, its deconstruction. As the Sayre Barn was dismantled its skeleton was revealed, the tools of another age came out of the shadows to be reexamined and admired for their sculptural beauty and simple utility, and on each structural element could be seen signs of the passage of time. With his engineer’s training and artist’s eye, and using photography’s most advanced techniques, Mr. Skogsbergh launched his meticulous examination of the time-worn building by creating a stunning four-by-15-foot, 360-degree panorama of the barn “before anything really happened.” This exhibit’s opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 14th, 4 to 6pm, free admission and light refreshments will be served.
