Life After Life: Linking Ancestry with Legacy

Examines Siegfried’s profound attachment to her ancestral summer home and her devotion to the objects and structures that create a bridge between the past and the present.

Nearly Perfect

What is considered beautiful is often imperfect or impermanent. Discarded and neglected objects suggest the transience of all things and the inevitable passage of time, but all embody a distinctive beauty.


An exhibition of photographic works drawn from forgotten 16mm film footage captured by Siegfried’s grandmother in the back lots of the Ringling Brothers Circus between 1927 and 1945.


A photographic installation, at once personal and universal, that tells the story of Siegfried’s diminishing family tree and contemplates the end of her family’s lineage.


A collection of portraits of Siegfried’s mother taken during her ninety-eighth and ninety-ninth years, culminating in her 100th birthday.


Through her self-portraits, Siegfried comments not only on the unavoidable and constant changes that occur to our bodies and psyches, but also on similar changes in the world around us.

Off Season explores usually active locations during times of dormancy: quiet spaces where the viewer is uncertain whether something has ended or something is about to begin.

Earlier Work
