A new series of works, from which the exhibition takes its name, uses photographs of images of works that Pirecki no longer owns. Re-photographed directly from digital files on her computer screen, along with the attendant image distortion, they are layered with other photos on transparent photographic material which are images of substances that shift between material states; ice, water and iridescent bubbles. Pirecki plans to document these during the exhibition to use as material for future work.
Moving between originals and copies, often re-photographing her own work to generate new and different iterations within the studio and the exhibition space, Pirecki's practice addresses notions of proximity; how images act as an analogue for memory, unpredictably accumulating, persisting, mutating or disappearing.
