Voix 2018 exhibition highlights: Brianna Fitzgerald

At the root of Brianna's practice is a struggle with accepting loss, misguided notions of permanence, and a profound longing for that which cannot ever be had or replaced. Through video and photography, Brianna records repetitive performative actions which she undertakes primarily with two sets of items that have been in her family for most of her life: a 35-year-old spool of string, and a collection of over 500 matchboxes. Rooted in feelings of nostalgia, Brianna's practice focuses on everyday objects and events to explore the greater emotional weight that these objects carry.
