SOLO EXHIBITION | APRIL 17-MAY 17

Aimée Beaubien’s work is consistently photographic in its barest form. In Twist-flip-tremble-trace, Beaubien reconsiders her personal snapshots with a constructive vigor, choosing to carve, disassociate, and collage her content to forms that teeter between physical familiarity and intuitive gesture. These cut-up and recontextualized source photographs, which include scenes from her day-to-day to travel images to rephotographed artworks, take shape in playful three-dimensional structures that then absorb and fuse with Beaubien’s found domestic objects. In tandem, the delicate collage objects weave and dangle with and from the stacked furniture — an unsure foundation.
