Details

Driftless is a series of diptychs exploring how transient artist Alessandra Sulpy responds to her new, permanent residence of Winona MN. Taking in all the area in and around Winona, Sulpy offers to viewers the area’s alluring past and present in sometimes unusual ways; a house rots around a 55-ton boulder, glass-eyed exotic animals gaze out at bank patrons, classrooms hide equipment from courses not taught in decades. Sulpy is fascinated and charmed by these often bizarre local elements and relates her own experience of settling down in the town and community she has come to think of as home.
