FIAF and The Invisible Dog Art Center co-present Growing Matter, an exhibition by Invisible Dog resident artist Camille de Galbert.
From Camille de Galbert:
Coral, humus, underbrush, seagrass, lichen: lifeforms all dependent on symbiotic relationships. Their life ability to regenerate is their intrinsic power. Their removal hinders the possibility of new life, making it nearly impossible to artificially create the conditions of their regeneration. Camille de Galbert creates these same fundamental ecosystems through patient, repetitive and cumulative movements. On the other end of this life cycle, we find sediments—the remnants of a life cycle–disintegrating, like these carbon black specimens.
In scaling up and becoming curious about the infinitely small within these symbiotic ecosystems—exploring hidden zones, villus, crevices–Camille de Galbert reveals some of the most mysterious forms of matter.
