NEW YORK, 10011


While her previous exhibition, Sweet Corruptions, examined food decay and waste in the context of ecology’s literal meaning, “earth’s household,” here Clark moves backwards in the food sequence and explores the physical context from which food emerges – soil, water and air. As part of her long-term dialogue with nineteenth-century female scientists, Clark learned to use a gun, hunt, and to prepare and taxidermy animals, thus confronting the physical properties of her environment. Work in this exhibition is greatly informed by her experiences hunting, which required separating her surroundings into the visual, the auditory, and the physical.
