Photographer Andrea Tese comments on this body of work: “The process of arranging the objects and creating tableaus within the various spaces of my grandparents’ house is soothing. I can approach the process of disassembling a lifetime systematically… I can create something from this destruction of attachment… give these objects new life.”
Andrea Tese is a New York based photographer whose practice focuses on legacy and impermanence. Her work creates new histories through the manipulation and documentation of her chosen surroundings. Facilitated by the perceived “truth” of photography, Tese records her constructed scenes, giving them the quality of an uncanny document. Through this constructed stage, Tese plays her dual roles of documentarian and storyteller, creating permanence through her process and photographic document.

East End Arts thanks Josh Sapan and the Greenport Theater for providing the exhibition space.
