Anne Geoffroy

Heritières

March 1 – April 14, 2013

Anne Geoffroy's painstakingly rendered drawings and sculptures evoke her lost childhood, and suggest a cumbersome family legacy laden with secrets. In search of an identity, Geoffrey questions how and what we transmit to future generations. She refers to some of her drawings as "les Fantômes," or the ghosts, and some of her sculptures as "les Héritières," the heiresses. These pieces have a haunted quality, and carry the weight of her own past and that of her family.
