The Everyday Archivist
Kaya Fraser is a multi-media artist and writer working with analogue photography, archives and amateur home movies. Using memory work, the home and it's extended boundaries to the two schemes she grew up in, Fraser celebrates the forgotten practices of The Everyday Archivist. Whilst interested in the 'everyday' and the modes of unconscious archives that exist in a working-class home, she encourages the remembrance of these practices and archives to highlight accessible culture and heritage during times of austerity.
"I feel most influenced when sharing and collectively remembering with others, everyday memories or consciousness. This is kneaded into my practice through memory work which becomes visual and textual artworks."
