March 9 - May 18, 2019
NAUSEA is a solo show of works by Los Angeles-based artist Arden Surdam. “For her first show in Texas, Surdam presents six photographs alongside a freshwater aquatic installation and a custom donut-shaped algae tank, which will cultivate the growth of Nannochlropsis (green algae) during the exhibition period.
Through ongoing research on the coded relationship between art and food, Surdam’s work probes the convergence of class, art history, and culinary traditions. Directing viewers to tune into the historical use of food and its visual representation, the artist transgresses established conventions of cultural patterning and class-determined consumption.”
