ARCHIVO PLATFORM WELCOMES THE NEW EDITORIAL INTERN CHLOE DAVIES.
Chloe Davies is a recent MA Documentary photography graduate from University of South Wales in Cardiff, UK. She is a multidisciplinary artist, manipulating text, performance, photography and moving image. Her practice considers the connection between relationships, memory and the archive and its subsequent role on the interplay of narrative and familial transgenerational trauma. Her current work plays with the mise-en-scène of transgenerational anecdotes, exploring familial relationships and the interplay between memory and the archive.
Interested in exploring the archive's reliability regarding historical events, investigating fact and fiction, reality and memory, primarily focusing on the family archive. The family photograph album portrays histories solely by imagery and memory.
During her Editorial Internship at Archivo Platform [May-Aug 2021], she will investigate the archive and its inability to represent the past accurately, questioning how this affects generations that look upon the archive as a legitimate source of their past, identity and culture.
