by Stephanie Garon
curated by Jerry Truong
February 21st – March 22nd 2020
Stephanie Garon’s current body of work, presented in “(De)composition,” includes drawings, sculptures, and a hanging installation. Each piece contains industrial elements, such as steel, combined with natural materials she personally collected. While deceptively formal, the resulting artworks are actually ecologically motivated interventions. As the pieces move and change over time, the physical process of decomposition becomes evident, emphasizing the fragility of nature. In this exhibition, Garon continues her exploration of the ways in which the environment is vulnerable to humanity, as well as her own evolving role as an artist, poet, and activist.
