An exhibition of new photography and installation by Catherine Evans and Piotr Pietrus
Exhibition Dates: Thurs 26 – Mon 30 Jan 2017
Gallery Hours: 2 – 6pm and by appointment
Vernissage: Thurs 26 from 7pm
Tête presents Mammalia, the first collaborative exhibition by Berlin-based artists Catherine Evans and Piotr Pietrus. Working across sculpture and photography, the artists mine the mythological origin of the Milky Way to uncover stellar traces in smaller, earth-bound cosmos.
In this exhibition the artists will create a large-scale wall installation where roughly cut quartz crystal collected from the mines in Lower Silesia, Poland, are mounted on a dusty pink carpet. This unexpected juxtaposition of geological matter and domestic material merges with the photographic, creating a new constellation within the gallery.
Mammalia presents an attempt to frame the relations of subjects that are embedded within different timescales; whether be it bath water circling or the geological timescales of rocks. These quiet gestures, once amplified, become about the act of searching for meaning, about the human desire to map and render the invisible, visible.
