RAW: Stones of Teeth

StonesOfTeeth_Web_900 May 22nd-June 27th 2014, pharm Wednesday-Saturday 12pm-5pm RAW: Gallery of Architecture & Design, order 290 McDermot Avenue Admission: Free

Stones of Teeth was an exhibition by Chad Connery and Anca Matyiku that explored the relationship between myth, material ecologies, and the politics of making. The visitor was invited to wander through a saline topography that was simultaneously growing and disintegrating; a constructed space that perpetually made and unmade itself. The landscape, inspired by Nordic mythology, was populated by cast salt bodies that sprouted fragile precipitates and turquoise blooms.
