Claire Anna Watson - 'Heterochiral Sequence'

Presented by Black Box Projects

In 'Heterochiral Sequence', plant matter is transposed into an otherworldly environment. This new work investigates the way that food is presented to us; it seeks to subvert the glossy magazines that market comestibles and contemplates how synthetic technologies are influencing our way of life.

Art Benefit previously on at MAY SPACE in Waterloo precinct, New South Wales, Australia.

The work arises from an ongoing fascination for plant life and our intrinsic connection to the natural world through the food that we eat. It explores how this relationship is fraught with tension, the effects of an ever-changing world. In this work, the subject itself is given agency; food is a spectacle, animated ​in an effort ​ to seduce the viewer​ into a state of contemplation​.
