Opening December 12th at Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery, New York is “Unnatural Selections,” a solo exhibition by Dominique Paul. Using photographs and video work, Dominique Paul journeys through a plausible near future where humans and animals adapt to survive. “Unnatural Selections” derives from three projects the artist undertook between 2010 and 2013: “The Insects of Surinam, Migrations of the Arthropods and Prometheus”. Global warming is the subject of “Migrations of the Arthropods”, Paul’s 2012 photo and video work in which wearable structures are created using recycled plastic bottles to affect a transformation from human to insect, thus re-envisioning Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” as an evolutionary survival mechanism.
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 12th, 2013. 6-8pm.
“Unnatural Selections” is on view through January 18th, 2014.
