Holly Andres: The Fall of Spring Hill
Jackson Fine Art is thrilled to present a solo exhibition of new work by young, critically acclaimed photographer Holly Andres.
Through a suite of 13 photographs, Holly Andres’s The Fall of Spring Hill illustrates an incident from a summer church camp in which a child injures himself by falling from a dilapidated wooden play structure and the mothers' fierce reaction to deconstruct it in retribution. The story, which unfolds through highly stylized cinematic storyboards, is a personal memory of Andres’s from her childhood. In the June issue of Modern Painters, this series was featured alongside the work of Jeff Wall. The article explores the current trend in contemporary art for imagery that deals with the idea of the fallen angel. “Wall staged a fall as a demonstration of the laws of physics. Andres declined to stage one to signal that no rules govern remembrance.”
