Tara Fracalossi finds discarded
snapshots and takes them back to her studio where she sorts them
by categories, blows them up on a photocopier, or packs them away
in hand folded archival envelopes.
Her site-specific installations are an extension of her studio
practices: found and collected photographs are writ large on the
wall or hidden away in museum cases.
Presented in a deadpan manner, Fracalossi's materials suggest
that current conventions of mechanical reproduction and archival
preservation are unreflective practices meant to thwart rather then
anything beyond the status quo.
