Exhibition runs May 1—July 14, 2018
Opening May 17, 2018 from 6-8pm.
This exhibition is part of the 2018 Medalta International Artists in Residence program.
Olivia Rozema approaches her work with the methodical precision of a scientist. Through documenting and rendering the anatomy of a roadkill rabbit she studies the forms and textures of decomposition. Those that most interest her as sculpture slowly grow in size until they are fully realized large scale formal objects. Objects somewhat abstracted and yet still reminiscent of their origins.
The exhibition, For the Carrion, pays tribute to the process of decay. A process inherent to all of life and one Olivia knows well. The shapes of decomposition, removed from their natural context and enlarged, reside in the space between the familiar and the unfamiliar. Such that a rabbit, may be seen not just as a whole, but as a complex network of parts.
