Box of Fiction | Roman Nvmerals Books, Vol. LVII

Ann Burke Daly’s Box of Fiction, is a photographic essay on the uncanny afterlife of objects, photographs, narratives, and biographies inherited through material and verbal fragments, and of the act of documenting—as in a crime scene— the contents of a cardboard box discovered a decade after the death of the artist’s mother. For Daly, the work of interpretation does not rest, rather it remains agitated within a palimpsest of silencing surrounding catastrophic family events.


Drafts: Letters Unsent | Roman Nvmerals Books, Vol. XVII

In a blurring of the genres of memoir and fiction, Ann Burke Daly's Drafts: Letters Unsent, is a meditation on the narrator’s detective work, through unsent letters, which attempt to “make sense” of the catastrophic aftermath of war, for her family. Radical doubt regarding documents, particularly photographs, and the active dynamic of interpretation, underscores the role of desire and psychological projection through this forensic search from snippets of narrative, papers, photographs, language, stories.
