Elizabeth LoPiccolo is a photographer and musician living in Brooklyn. She is captivated by the way the camera lets her mix anthropological curiosity with creative restlessness. Interested especially in relationships between people and the places they inhabit and the intersections of natural and built environments, she makes graphic documents oriented in dream space. Much of the work in this show is part of an ongoing series about the her relationship to invasive species in her backyard in which her engagement has shifted from resistance to acquiescence. The evidence of previous attempts at controlling the plants persists in the shrinking presence of a camouflage tarp, discarded office rug, and weather-beaten wooden chairs. In depicting these backyard assemblages she examines the cultural and ecological contexts in which various actors become known as invaders.
