Annabelle Dalby & Lucy Steggals, Chapter 1 - Origins and Approaches


This collaborative show at The 12 Gallery explores and questions existing modes of collecting & archiving. These perpetual editing decisions are an intrinsic part of life and are very telling, exposing our desire to modulate our reality to project a preferred version. Dalby & Steggals are appropriating objects and images from their own collections to create an alterior archive. Using their individual approaches; Dalby sensitively re-presents existing photographs to highlight that which we may have missed; Steggals appropriates and manipulates imagery to weave alternative fictions. By combining the two they have made a series of works that resonate with a compelling narratives for lives both real and imagined. ' Origins and Approaches' is the first in what will be a series of alterior archives collated by Dalby and Steggals over a period of time.
