"Snow Traces" by Francesca Pfister at Burrison Gallery

Snow Traces

January 11 through February 19 2010


The University Club at Penn, 2nd floor, 3611 Walnut St., Philadelphia, Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 7:30-5:00 Saturday–Sunday, 7:00–1:00

Francesca Pfister practices a form of visual archeology. Working in photography, video and installation, she explores the physical world around her in search for human presence. In Snow Traces she investigates a pedestrian’s experience of Philadelphia streets in the aftermath of a snowstorm. The photo installation composed by twelve diptychs testifies of Pfister's fascination with the transformative qualities of ephemeral marks and traces in the urban environment.
