FIONA CONNOR

Rooms I Have Keys For

October 23, 2022 - January 23, 2023

When Fiona Connor stays at a friend's house, she's navigating material economic conditions and prioritizing relationships and community as she travels from place to place. Written in graphite on the walls of the gallery (in an apartment building) are three notes for the artist staying at someone's home while they are away and three sets of keys given for her use with a photo of the keys inside the space they open.

She is attuned to hand-offs. She preserves signs of generosity, kindness, and nomadism. She collects and archives handmade or specific objects. By sharing and representing highly personal ephemera, she tells us about the pace, flexibility, and tonality of her life, the lightness of her being and the value of warmth.
