“As Rosalind Krauss has shown, Marcel Duchamp (and his alter ego Rrose Sélavy) put together a “panorama of the index” in his last painting Tu m’ (1918); here Ann Burke Daly (and her alter ego, the Automaton Olympia) puts together what we can only call an “index of the index.” The peculiar charge of all these disparate objects seems to rest in the paradoxical, indeed contradictory, double meaning of the word “index” itself.”

"An index preserves the trace of its referent, offers up its material residue, and yet this residue can only present itself as testimony to an absent object, an object both dissipated and opaque. Ann Daly’s collections then are characterized by a recurring failure, a failure to amass a coherent knowledge, to produce a series of self-contained objects. They are collections of holes, if we can imagine this, literally filled with absence. Daly’s project produces a collision between these two understandings of the index, the incongruity of which creates the logic of the work as a whole."

"Daly unhinges the everyday by her strategies of collecting details and evidence, to produce a dreamlike collection that thrives on loss in order to break free from the confines of the domestic interior.”

–S.Min, Curator, The Mourning After, Exhibition at LAMAG. Catalogue published by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG)


“…Ann Burke Daly invites the viewer to participate in a search that attempts to track the processes and deviations of memory in and through loss that redraw melancholia’s boundaries of space. In The Automaton Olympia Throws Her Voice and The Collector’s Dream, Daly attempts to control loss through the realm of the collection: an accumulation of objects images, and soundtracks."

"Ann Burke Daly's Stereoscopic Vision... an audio piece, but one set up for a single listener positioned to face outlines of absent photographs traced against the wall. Two different descriptions of the lost visual information played through the headphones. Though the voice on the tape was Daly's, any easy accessibility to her own narratives concerning the missing images was denied by the fact that the sound loops were of differing durations, creating endless and contradictory permutations of potential descriptions. The listener was thrown back into the privatized space of his or her own memories, constantly unfixed, however, by Daly's perpetually shifting cues."

"...The suffocating sensory excess of Ann [Burke] Daly's all-white bedroom, which is filled with wax flowers that emit a sickeningly sweet aroma. A halting monologue, delivered from speakers hidden in different corners of the room, is barely audible. As you move about the installation in an attempt to catch the words, the voice seems to shift elsewhere, like a memory that fades at the exact moment of recall."

–The Los Angeles Times,  Claudine Ise

“In the room, three audio recordings attempt to narrate a story about a woman named “D“. Disjunction between what is seen and what is heard in the staggered intervals of dialogue forces the viewer to inhale and take in the smells and tactility of Daly’s wax flowers and traces of collected items. The excess of smells and conflicting narratives afford a kind of decadence in which the excess of The Collector’s Dream spills over into claustrophobia and a wish to escape into the sublime.

“Particularly compelling was a series of small, austere, yet strangely elegant pencil drawings on tracing paper, "Building Drawings for a Machine for Electroplating the Dead", quasi-scientific studies of odd contraptions that seemed simultaneously utilitarian and bizarre.”
