A Symmetry is a time line of photographs and text charting seven objects chosen from the artist’s family archive – a letter by Lord Byron, a letter by King George V, a Weeping Beech tree in Hyde Park, London, a silver box engraved with Arabic text, pre-biblical urns and vessels, post enlightenment European porcelain, and a tree in Yosemite National Park. The linear indexing of these objects is confounded by the stories behind each one that weave a labyrinthine path of personal, historical, and political dimensions.
