Butterfly

was a 2020 solo exhibition curated by Hailey Kobrin, shown at Ada Slaight Student Gallery at OCAD U. The photos presented in Butterfly comprised of staged and candid photos of friends and family, along with still lives. These images came together to present an entrypoint into the artist’s social world, and reflect on the camera’s ability to transform the everyday and domestic into the fantastic through the process of photographing and curating. Lý’s personal belongings were shown alongside the photos, letting viewers in on the other artists, texts, and objects that informed the exhibition.
