The Perpetual Motion of the Still Life

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Ryerson Woods, Deerfield, Illinois.

Using materials drawn from the demolished gardener’s cottage located on the property of Ryerson Woods and the mutable image of the still life, artists Sara Black, Joseph Belknap and Sarah Belknap have generated an evolving performance installation on the Brushwood site at Ryerson Woods.

In conjunction with the evolving installation outside, artists Jeanne Dunning, Jessica Labatte, Mark Rospenda, Claire Ashley, and Kristina Paabus exhibit works of photography, drawing and painting inside Brushwood. The works in this group exhibition, as curated by Black and Belknap, further consider the historical role of still life and landscape painting as an attempt to describe truth through imagery while delicately revealing a much richer world of fragmentation, transformation and decay.
