Description

Polly Alderton
UK

“I make work around the Family Album. A compulsion really, to document everything in between the front door step pictures on the first day of school and Christmas eve outside the church. It’s searching; endlessly enveloping our bodies into small gaps, under blankets, within bodies, muffling the sounds to gain clarity and find our way. Memory and sensation, when did I stop hanging upside down or pushing my fingers deep into small holes to create big rips?

I’m hoarding too, giant vats of memories more reliable than my own; maybe? I’ll hunt each image for clues one day, I know it. There’s always been a piece missing.” – Polly Alderton
