Odette England: The Outskirts, Exposed and Punched

We’re delighted to present a solo exhibition of new work by Odette England. This will be the artist’s second solo show at the gallery, and brings together a selection of artworks from three recently completed and ongoing projects.

Home is the center-weight of England’s artistic practice, with memory and forgetting being the counterbalances. Her photographs are fragile, contemplative and temporal spaces.

England’s background as a painter, informs her assertion of photography’s materiality, with the photographic print often being the starting point, not the end point of her practice. The physical photograph intrigues the artist, especially for its connection to personal and collective memory.

About Klompching Gallery

Klompching Gallery was established in Dumbo, Brooklyn in September 2007. Owned and operated by Debra Klomp Ching and Darren Ching, the gallery quickly established itself as a gallery with an extraordinary roster of artists from which to purchase some of the best examples of contemporary photography—with exhibition reviews in publications such as The New Yorker, Art Review, Modern Painters, New York magazine and the Wall Street Journal, as well as numerous notable cultural websites.

Since its inception, the gallery has earned a solid reputation for providing informed guidance on the acquisition of contemporary fine art photography.
