Abstract (English)

"Ruffled Follicles and a Tangled Tongue is a solo exhibition by Jennifer Rose Sciarrino, featuring new sculptural installation and video works, with the artist thinking through language and gesture to a microscopic level. The installation is comprised of blown glass and carved stone bearing the resemblance of microscopic cells of seeds, spores and bacteria on a magnified scale. The sculptures are held in precarious positions by their steel armatures, a likeness to the gestures of taking and receiving of such cellular information. An alabaster dandelion seed resembling a tongue, reaches towards a split glass archaea that may remind us of a kidney. Aspects of life are enlarged and entangled, creating likely or uncommon relationships in the complex systems of worlding." -- publisher's website.
