Exhibition - Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
October 19, 2017 – December 17, 2017
Contemporary On-site presents MEMO, an installation of work by French artist Manon Bellet curated by Aaron Levi Garvey and Stevie Covart Garvey of Long Road Projects.
MEMO highlights the vulnerability of the natural environment and its impending destruction. As visitors move throughout the installation, their presence alters the collective works on view. Burning Air – a work comprised of burnt silk paper fragments – shifts and stirs while Golden Waste – an interactive work of perfumed paper made from the scents collected from endangered areas of the Louisiana wetlands – dulls over time. These pieces act as a metaphor for lost or soon to be lost environments. MEMO endeavors to visually illustrate how delicate and fleeting nature can be with mankind’s sustained impact.
