February 10–September 22, 2013

With clay as her medium, Arts/Industry artist Kate MacDowell (WA) highlights both the impermanence and the fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically using a material that can last for thousands of years. Her subject matter—the vulnerability of animal species—is brought into the documentary realm as she photographs her slip-cast frogs and pigeons in outdoor landscapes, bearing witness to the endangered animal in its natural environment.
