“The spaces we occupy and the objects we surround ourselves with characterise us. And yet Pfeffer’s homes do not disclose anything of the occupants or their environment. They are transient and this is a personal trajectory. The process of observing, recording and re-making triggers memory and archives it. ” — Karra Rees, Arts Project Australia
