Abstract (English)

"Carrie Walker and Heather Passmore make pictures that introduce animals into what was previously a non-zoological context. Their exhibition, Reflexive Animals, brings together two very different but related projects that explore new avenues of both intervention and appropriation. Passmore's Form Letters, twelve of which are on view, are 40 x 30 inch blow-ups of letters she has received from art institutions, onto which she has drawn and painted scenarios that often involve animals cavorting around the “form” of the missive. Walker's ongoing Found Drawings project, titled Adaptation for this exhibit, involves both shifts in scale and shifts in the context of the habitat depicted in 19th century drawings and paintings she purchases on eBay." -- Publisher's website.
