What can we glean of a person’s identity from the remnants of their life? Which aspects of our legacy are the result of our making, or the result of survival and chance? The archiving of photographs suggests a desire to reflect on our lives and to leave something of ourselves behind, whilst the accumulation of certain objects during our lives suggests a need to shape our legacies. I work with found objects, particularly photographs, letters and lace sourced from flea markets and second-hand shops in order to sift through traces of anonymous histories. In collecting these pieces, both the presence and absence of information and context is significant. Enigmatic personal items draw viewers into fleeting moments of intimacy whilst still obscuring the lives from which they originate.
