Nicole Franchy is a Peruvian photographer with her first solo show currently on exhibition at the Chimney. The exhibit, titled “Vertical Horizons,” showcases a site-specific installation along with prints and collages, all of which deal with the ideas of translation and representation.


Franchy is interested in the overlap of the past, present, and future, and her works often have a nonlinear temporal quality. She explores the archive and the fictive by re-interpreting, translating, and appropriating images. For her installation, she engraved her freehand drawings onto pages of the Encyclopedia Britannica, then translated them onto duraclear film. Through this process, the archive is brought to life, and new meanings are opened up by intersecting fiction and reality.
