Do Things to Images presents for the first time a selection of photographs from 2014 to 2019 by the artist Odette England. It includes images from her newest series ‘Love Notes’.
England’s parent’s former dairy farm, and the archive of snapshots her family made there, serve as raw material for England's practice. Many of her photographs are unique pieces. By mixing preciousness with low-fi, unrepeatable processes, England highlights the infidelity of memory.
This exhibition includes prints from negatives that England buried and then dug up, and hand-torn paper prints. It features pages ripped from family photo albums, and vintage snapshots that have been hole-punched, among other works. Her need to cut, crop, sand, fold and otherwise manipulate photographs is in contrast to the French meaning of her name, Odette, ‘Lover of Home’.
Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sunday, 12-4 p.m.
