Adrienne Scott - Artist talk @ KARSH-MASSON Gallery

ADRIENNE SCOTT
Magpie Landscapes

ARTIST TALK
Sunday, October 21, 2:00 pm
All welcome. Free admission. Presented in English.

The exhibition continues until October 31, 2018 inclusively.

Adrienne Scott’s way of collecting hints at a deeper understanding of the significance and potential contentiousness of imposing rigid codifications on-and claiming authority over-the world and its knowledge, an approach traditionally adopted by museums and archival institutions. As the artist gathers her ephemeral inventory, she "underscores the nature of all archival materials as found yet constructed, factual yet fictive." [Hal Foster, "An Archival Impulse", October, Vol. 110 (Fall 2004), The MIT Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, p. 5.] It’s as though her fluid taxonomies support obscure fantasies tinged with a personal nostalgia for unspoiled ecosystems. In this sense, Magpie Landscapes can be read as an abstract catalogue of the world’s impermanent textures.
