DESCRIPTION

Photographer Janna Ireland also takes on the role of another. In our back gallery, a selection of Ireland’s work from her most recent series, The Spotless Mirror, subtly examines femininity, the domestic, and the bourgeoisie, while riffing on both 1980s female African-American artists and symbolism from canonical paintings. She explains, “I am playing a character, and her life has little to do with my own. It is a fantasy, born of a fascination with representations of wealth.” Through Ireland’s invented protagonist, the photographs speak to a larger narrative surrounding the tenuous qualities of status, position, and photographic depiction.
