Klea Mckenna, Album/Anthem is a series of large chromogenic photographs (30x40 inches) and an collection of small artifacts that were burned in a house fire. In April of 2009 a family home in rural Vermont burned to the ground. 15 months later I walked through the charred foundation and found a family photo album and a box of family snapshots that had melted into a dark mass. Locals told me that that after the fire the family had moved away and that what was left there had lain exposed to the snow, rain and heat of several seasons. The object I found was a palimpsest, a book of otherworldly patterns and colors. Nearly all recognizable imagery (the very purpose of snapshots and photo albums) had dissolved, leaving an intricate visual record of the elements, chaos and loss.
