The palimpsest is a re-writable scroll that is erased only to make room for more information. The palimpsest, by nature, is both performance and a document.

Tracy Peters  began a four-month installation in an abandoned shed near her house in Charleswood. Peters spent the summer documenting this 100-year-old shed as a living palimpsest. This displacement [from the shed to the studio] offers a parallel understanding for the deforestation taking place in the shed’s vicinity.

Tracy Peters uses photography, sculpture and installation to explore connections between lived-in structures, the natural environment and the human body.
