NATURE OBJECT #19
Location: Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles
Date: March 30 – May 12, 2019
Exhibition: CO-lab (group exhibition with Rotterdam and LA based artists)
Nature object #19 is a composition with natural and artificial materials found within the city of Los Angeles. The composition includes quite a few palmtree leaves. Of course palmtrees are iconic for LA but the question is how long they will remain so because a beetle and a fungus are life-threatening plagues. Also included in this composition are dried flowers and a plastic buxus shrub of the local Home Depot store. Very characteristic for the area are also the numerous succulents and cacti in huge formats. The orange traffic cone refers to the fact that LA is very much a city designed for cars.
