Nathan Florsheim is an artist and educator based in Chicago, IL.
His practice investigates how photography can function as a tool for reclamation and reconnection within the context of the urban landscape. He photographs specific sites and deconstructs/reconstructs them through the use of collage, fragmentation, and by taking physical recordings by rubbing photographic gelatin silver paper. Nathan’s work addresses the ways we forget and ignore human-made spaces once they become vacant, or at least until they show monetary value, a symptom of a collective amnesia that separates us from our impact on the places we inhabit.
Group exhibitions include: 062 Gallery, Chicago, IL; Filter Photo, Chicago; Sullivan Galleries, Chicago, and the SAIC Columbus Building, Chicago. His series Artefactual was published in the 45th issue of the UK Journal, Antennae in 2018. He co-curated the show Circumambulation with Ann Meisinger at ACRE Projects in 2018.
Nathan received his BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2019. He currently works as the gallery manager at ACRE Projects, and is a teaching artist at the Evanston Art Center.
