JANET MALCOLM    FEBRUARY 2 - FEBRUARY 27, 2010
PHOTOGRAPHS: BURDOCK
The exhibition will consist of 25 recent photographs of burdock leaves.  The burdock is a rank weed that grows along roadsides 
and derelict buildings.  MALCOLM has extracted them from this, their natural environment, and transplanted them to small glass vases in her attic studio where she photographs them contrasted against a stark white wall.  She selects leaves that have been 
victims of decay, insects and blight.

In 2008 Yale University Press published Burdock, a book of earlier leaf photographs by MALCOLM.

MALCOLM is a staff writer at the New Yorker and frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books.  She is author of 
Two Lives: Gertrude and Alice (2008), In the Freud Archives 
(2002), Reading Chekhov (2002), Diana and Nikon: Essays on Photography (1997), The Silent Woman: Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes (1995), The Journalist and the Murderer (1990).

MALCOLM also makes collages which she exhibits at 
Lori Bookstein Fine Art, New York.
