Statement
Jenn Law is an artist, writer, and publisher living in Toronto. Her multi-disciplinary practice explores book culture, the historical archive/library, literary objects, and processes of collection and storytelling through material things. Working with print-based processes broadly defined, Law’s work presents a collection of evolving artifacts transitioning between tradition and invention. Flower Vase (Heirloom Series) is part of her ongoing series Still (2017-), which builds a biographical narrative through the social life of heirlooms. Hand-lithographed on tissue-thin paper, each storied artifact serves as an ethereal portrait of a personal heirloom in the artist’s own collection, collectively called upon for the tenuous access they grant their possessor to past lives, real and imagined.
