Carol Sawyer, The Natalie Brettschneider Archive, 2000-ongoing (Natalie Brettschneider performs Profile Mask, Around 1952), Archival ink jet print from original negative, Acquired with the assistance of Kathleen Taylor, 2015.

In this ongoing project, Vancouver artist Carol Sawyer assembles a fiction as realistically as possible to tell a needed story. Convincingly manufactured photographs and documentary materials imagine the life and work of a genre-blurring, avant-garde artist leaving a fragmentary imprint through Modernism’s exclusionary narrative.
