Louise Girl


‘I opened the box and found the hidden treasures.’

A curated archive of materiality retracing five generations of matriarchy and our relationship to the past through installation.
An enquiry and discourse woven from the threads of time:
– questioning familiarity;
– cataloguing the memory and ancestral relationships that objects hold;
– unraveling the layers through obsessive repetition, iconography and documentation;
– finding beauty in imperfection;
– reconstructing an archetype to bring the past to life.

A personal story that could be everybody’s story.
‘It is evident that a woman’s “character” – her convictions, her values, her wisdom, her morality, her tastes, her behaviour – are to be explained by her situation.’
Simone de Beauvoir. The Second Sex (1949)

Exhibition comprises of prints, photography and found objects forming an installation
