This week we’ve completely overtaken the Museum of Nature, working fastidiously to finish installing Preternatural.
Anne Katrine Senstad arrived from New York via Norway yesterday and Mariele Neudecker arrives from London today, while the show’s local artists: Marie-Jeanne Musiol and Andrew Wright have been in the process of installing their photo-based works in the exhibition space since last week. Sarah Walko, who drove in from New York City last Wednesday has just put the finishing touches on the fish tank which will feature in her installation.
Intrigued? We’ve compiled some of our favourite photos of the installation process to share with you, below. A big thank you to every one who slogged away behind the scenes to bring Preternatural to life. Enjoy!
See you all tomorrow night (Thursday December 8th) at 6pm for the Vernissage at the Museum of Nature (240 McLeod Street)!
This past Friday, Marie-Jeanne Musiol graciously welcomed us into her backyard studio for a short tour and illuminating discussion about her foliate photographic series: The Radiant Forest, Energy Herbarium (2011)
Using a complex electromagnetic photographic process, Musiol captures the innate energy present in living organisms. Each photograph represents a specific leaf at a distinct point in its life cycle.
The series is a continuation of Musiol’s exploration into the nature of botanical energy and magnetic fields as communicative forces.
To view the complete series, visit Preternatural at the Canadian Museum of Nature from December 9 2011-February 12, 2012.
