…the moon gazed on my midnight labours, while, with unrelaxed and breathless eagerness, I pursued nature to her hiding places.- Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, 1818

Time To Start Over, a group exhibition of recent works by artists Lauren Hall, Jennifer Rose Sciarrino and Leisure (Meredith Carruthers _ Susannah Wesley). Scientists suggest that we are entering a geological epoch, termed “the Anthropocene,” in which the natural world bears the unmistakable mark of the human hand. At the advent of this new history, works of sculpture, mixed-media assemblage and video befall the question of a human-made “nature” through history, fantasy, simulation and speculation.

One pair of scissors is rusted and the screw connecting its two blades has been tightened too tightly. The other is new and orange handled, of the inexpensive variety available everywhere. The paper is a lightweight bond roll. Snip, snip, snip. The cutters bring an intensity and focus to their task. They seem determined to find this invisible line.

Territoires sédimentés

Territoires sédimentés / l’imaginaire dans l’appréhension du territoire
En effet, le territoire prête aisément ses flancs topographiques, sa configuration géographique, sa complexité écologique, sa durée historique et son charisme symbolique aux élans inventifs — parfois fantaisistes — des créateurs culturels. Labile dans son identité et pluriel dans son devenir potentiel, le territoire se révèle couche après couche comme la sédimentation cumulative de processus physiques et de représentations imaginaires.
