"Revenants" by Artists Kelly Richardson, Nicolas Sassoon & Rick Silva

A brand new exhibition that includes Canadian artist Kelly Richardson, Franco-Canadian artist Nicolas Sassoon and Brazilian-American artist Rick Silva. Curated by Brussels-based artwork area Rectangle, “Revenants” performs with concepts of scale and time because it pertains to human notion and our place on this planet. Sassoon’s ongoing sculpture sequence, “Prophets,” combines volcanic rock with LCD panels that includes pixelated animations harking back to flowing lava. Recalling conventional viewing stones, from which digital {hardware} and screens emerge to kind heads and figures, the sculptures recount a partial historical past of our relationship with matter and reminds us, not simply of how the very floor beneath our ft was shaped, however the place the identical minerals that allow our digital lives originate. Sassoon and Silva’s collaborative venture equally speaks to the connections between natural and inorganic supplies as they share a typical curiosity in depictions of wilderness and pure types by way of pc imaging. “CORES” is made up of high-resolution 3D renderings of geological specimens altered by unnatural substances and enigmatic buildings.

On the opposite finish of the planetary spectrum, Richardson takes us into the asteroid belt of our photo voltaic system. Persevering with concepts explored in “Pillars of Daybreak” the place extinct species in a seemingly post-human world have taken the type of crystals, “Origin Tales” reveals the majesty and infinite wealth of our house throughout the context of the universe. Nonetheless intensely inward (historic / geological) or outward (celestial / futuristic) these artists could also be wanting, all of the items in “Revenants” appear to come back again to the identical factor — what position or accountability we nonetheless have but to play. As Alexandra Crouwers states in her essay on the present:

“Once we return to the human energy of 1, we’re left with the realisation that whereas our species’ behaviour is liable for the present world extinction occasion, it’s equally able to producing uniquely imaginative visions. Artwork alone can’t save the world however the creation of artwork could very properly be thought-about because the yin to our damaging yang.”
