With Remarks About My Body, Odette England explores the notion that ‘we are what we wear’, and the psychology of dress. The photographs reference the changes the artist experienced in her body—and with wider priorities—through motherhood.

“Clothing affects perception, and putting on different clothes can dramatically change mood”, says England. “The negative space is just that—the space of my body now, variants in skin tone and texture.  In some ways I was what I wore but am no longer.  My body has become more flesh-like and abstract and there are things, physical and emotional, that no longer fit”.

Remarks About My Body is informed by the research of Professors Hajo Adam and Adam Galinsky, whose paper 'Enclothed Cognition’, discusses the systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer's psychological processes [used with kind permission].

Saturday, November 19th, 4pm

Please join us on Saturday, November 19th, for an artist talk to be given by Odette England, on the final day of her solo exhibition, Excavations

"Preserving family history via photography is like archaeology: it involves the exposure, processing and recording of remains. But to uncover the truth of an image – or at least an interpretation of a truth – a ‘hunt’ or ‘dig’ is required. 
'Excavations' explores the invisible social space of family storytelling through photography. I make c-prints in the darkroom of family pictures from expired Kodak film, as well as using original snapshots from the album, then carefully hand-sand them with various types of sandpaper. I aim to loosen the complexities of material encounter with intangible concepts. Mine is also a literal assault. I cross into taboo territory, the transgression and squeamish horror of destroying original personal possessions".—Odette England

DUMBOs First Thursday Gallery Walk

On the first Thursday of each month, the galleries in our neighborhood of DUMBO, Brooklyn, remain open until 9:00pm. Unless we're closed for installing, you'll find us open alongside numerous others. Many of the local bars and restaurants run special offers on the night, making them good spots to dine after you've visited the galleries. 

Participating galleries change a little, month-to-month. Follow THIS LINK for tonight's map of galleries, artist studios and other spaces taking part tonight. And be sure to stop by the Klompching Gallery!
