Signature: Signed, Titled, Numbered Verso

"In this series of unique prints, I reenact the family album through the deliberate DIY act of scissoring myself from personal snapshots, and then realigning the hand-cut splinters. The works are more than altered souvenirs of my childhood; they are gestural, spatial re-recordings. There is preciousness to my existing in the album, which I call into question. This exercise of elimination, re-appropriation, and change gives me the chance to re-determine and redesign how my past is displayed from hereon."—Odette England
