Grapevine Editions 001: Catherine Madden and Anthony Elliott
Folds interrogates the space between memory and reality. Drawing on journal entries, text messages, misremembered conversations and fragmented photographs to reconstruct old intimacies, it questions the way in which our memories of past relationships make up our identities, despite the fact that we are always reaching for something which no longer exists. Catherine Madden’s collage poetry and Anthony Elliott’s fractured analogue photographs work in dialogue to expose the violence, tenderness and loss laced through our romantic histories. The series explores the weight of the past on the present and asks us what we have left to hold onto in the aftermath of love.
