Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain is an exhibition of works by artists who address relationships to the natural world through video, sculpture, photography, and drawing. It features artworks that reference psychoactive plants (Ciarán Ó DochartaighMelanie Bonajo), automated forestry production (Edward Clydesdale Thomson), environments of spiritual nourishment (Veit Laurent Kurz) and morphologies of animal, vegetable, mineral form (Gemma Anderson). These artistic approaches do more than take the natural world as a passive and addressable ‘thing’. Instead, the natural world is understood here as an active ecological system with incorporating powers of its own.  Alongside works by contemporary artists are a selection of prints by photographer Karl Blossfeldt (1865 – 1932) – close-ups of plant life that simultaneously emphasise the mechanistic structures that exist in nature and the camera’s revolutionary powers of magnification.

The exhibition title is taken from an album by Pavement.

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain is an exhibition that exists in two versions, at CCA Derry~Londonderry (7 February – 21 March 2015) and at Lismore Castle Arts St Carthage Hall, Co.Waterford (13 February – 19 April 2015).
