Chua, Genevieve b.1984 / Swivel #5, Bone Mineral
about this work
Swivel is part Unnatural History Drawings, a series started in 2014, that explores the system of museological practices in configuring specimens within dioramas. The artist uses aspects of natural history as metaphor and allegory to hark back to ongoing thematic concerns about fear, wilderness, control and the loss of control. This assortment of objects and visual paradigms of ecosystems project towards larger historical or scientific trajectories. Chua‘s practice explores the fear of the unknown, focusing in particular on projections of things that remain unseen. Through an unfurling narrative, the artist mediates alternate realities, which present open-ended questions.
