Remembering Sophia’s Garden, is a current installation by Christine Forni at Ignition Project Space. The exhibition is on view through November 02, 2019 where the closing reception will be held from 6-9pm.
The porcelain installation and migration photograms series stems from research Christine Forni had at two artist residencies while studying at Paris College of Art. One residency was at École du Breuil and the other was at Muséum national d’Historie naturelle.
The kiln-fired porcelain plant forms she made while abroad resemble hollow bonelike specimens, a visual hybridization of flora and fauna. Revealing the works history through the process of capturing light on photographic paper Forni creates another metamorphosis of memory.
She painted a migration of pigment onto the photograms referencing the place and color surrounding the lifeforms previous habitat. With her work she suggests to the viewer to consider the fragility of nature, recognizing its beauty, interconnectedness and importance in taking steps to preserve it.
