Susan McEachern: Structures of Meaning (source)

18 SEPTEMBER 2004 – 9 JANUARY 2005

Since the mid-1980s, Susan McEachern has examined the ways in which photography is involved in the production of cultural meaning. Her inquiry is supported by writings taken from historical, theoretical, and personal sources. In her early works, the artist used photographs, both as single images and in combination with text, to explore the social conditions of individual experience, in particular that of women. More recent projects examine the social values humans assign to nature. In all her projects, McEachern investigates the relation of photography to issues of family, community, and place. She uses her own home and family as one source of her subject matter. Other works draw on the locale of Nova Scotia, where she presently lives.
