The Neche Collection - Artist Veronica Corzo-Duchardt
The Neche Collection
November 8–29, 2012
In the Neche Collection, artist and designer Veronica Corzo-Duchardt retells the story of her grandfather's life across an archive of his possessions. Shaped both by his heritage as a Cuban exile of Lebanese descent and his painstaking work as an accountant, Neche instilled in his granddaughter a fascination with cultural artifacts as touchstones for personal history.
In her meditative and pristine prints for the Neche Collection, she reconsiders these items by focusing both on the fundamental clarity of their design and the emotional impact ownership brings to an object's surface.
