Flora McCallica as a body of work contains printworks, installations and photobookworks. The collages have auto-ethnographic and archaeological references, mixing orphan photographs dated 1958 found in the Lisbon flea market, and botanical specimens from an herbarium dated 1920s discarded by London Kew Gardens. Like pieces of evidence altered by the passage of time, the silkscreen and stone lithography prints have stains and patterns that are unique to each print.
Central to my work is the selection and publication of images in a variety of media, ranging from photobooks to photo-texts, newspapers and multiples. I am interested in the practices of assembling, collecting and archiving and look for intersections of context and narrative. I combine my own photographs with those by other photographers. The sources are diverse, including the Found Photo Foundation and other photographic collections,and so are the publishing formats. Multiplication, collage and decomposition are methods of working that reflect upon notions of authenticity, authorship and the aura of the technologically reproduced work of art.
