Deconstructing photographs from forensic and familial archives, the work engages with acts of re-enactment and memory. Investigating the fragmentary, the duplicate, and how such impacts on our relationship with the original. Context becomes narrative, returning the eye to something hidden or potentially overlooked. Extracted from the original source, the work reveals an instability. Challenging the notion of the neutral photograph, as being reliable, the act of intervention becomes a form of measurement; a means to attempt to understand. Contending with ideas of affect, surface, touch, and pose, the work seeks to inhabit a space between subject and object. Posturing to be something else it misleads, sending the original adrift, making the notion of truth porous.
