The installation ‘appropriates dead and living matter’ that the artist has collected, foraged and hoarded over time, including both elements of nature and detritus in an effort to articulate and ‘make sense of the world.’ Algae, lichen, mentha, kombucha, Diet Coke, marbles, wrapping, hair removal wax, lactation or tranquillity pills are some of the many items selected for their ingredients.
With a background in botanics, and an underlying knowledge of collecting and composing as such, the exhibition explores these findings both materially and also for the possibility of poison and infection. A new film ‘The People’ is composed from her vast family archive, with music by Raphaël Henard.
