How does the connection between our our bodies and recollections change as we age? Artist Casey Curran (beforehand) attends to this query in a brand new collection of kinetic sculptures. Titled Carrion Blooms, the works reference degeneration and decay and the way the physique’s stamina wanes. “We are able to all recall these days when our power appeared countless, twenty-four-hour benders the place we in some way managed to cram every thing in; work, college, hobbies, pals, and household. The time felt limitless with prospects,” Curran says.
Hand-cranks animate laser-cut bugs and flowers manufactured from mylar, which flutter, blossom, and retreat to their static positions. Emphasizing inevitable transformation and the fleeting nature of life, the artist likens the gilded skeletal constructions to scaffolding, a prized basis “to put the longer term on…Carrion Blooms is about how we modify over time, how we use our days in a different way with age, and what it means to let go of the previous,” he says. “What can be left after we are gone, and who will bear in mind the association we made?”
Carrion Blooms is on view from April 1 to Might 6 at Heron Arts in San Francisco, and yow will discover extra from Curran on his website and Instagram.
