About A Place of One's Own-
Sweden's Agnes Thor makes her Canadian solo exhibition debut with A Place of One's Own- a new, transportive photographic exhibition depicting a manufactured world comprised of invented memories. It’s an expedition in both familiar and unfamiliar surroundings where scenes have been collected to create a space which only now exists.
A Place of One's Own is an exhibition that concerns memories- not the ones you actually remember, but the ones you create on your own. By travelling to France, the place from where I can recall my first memory at the age of three, and returning back to my family home, I imagined I could discover memories that were hidden within me. However, I found nothing. Instead, I created memories in these photographs- they're neither fictional or real, but nevertheless true.
Sweden's Agnes Thor, who at just 23 years old, has already exhibited her photographs around the world and won Tim Barber's endorsement through both Tiny Vices and his involvement in the '08 NYPH, is an emerging photographer who has won international attention for her nature laden photographs that depict idyllic scenes of personal reflection.
