Katie Breckon is an New Zeland artist focusing on photography as her privileged medium.
For her series “Set the house in Order“, she meticulously documents objects from her former family home, things she’s leaving behind to let them rest in the sphere of memory. The life-sized photographs of family belongings build the personal archive of an intimate story, an archaeology of the recent past where every sign of time, scratches and marks, is carefully documented on the surface of everyday objects.
“Once I have documented these things, then I feel like it is okay for me to let them go and allow change to happen.”
