I am excited to be included in the exhibition Provenance at Ground Floor Gallery, featuring artists Ai Campbell, Sara Jones and Anne Mourier-DeFalco. The exhibition is an investigation of unfamiliar family histories through travel, artmaking and conjecture.
Provenance illustrates each artist’s attempt to demystify an estranged familial connection through explorations both in and outside of the studio space. By revisiting unknown or misunderstood identities and destinations of yore, Campbell, Jones and DeFalco intimately craft tender, mixed-media portraits that veer fluidly between the biographical and autobiographical. As a result, the exhibition emerges as a real time platform where hazy ancestral ties are elucidated and reimagined.
