Exhibition ”Traces”

March 7, 2010

Currently there’s an interesting exhibition at GALERIE GABRIEL ROLT in Amsterdam. Ideas of time, memory and materiality inhabit the works of ‘Traces’ from Jodie Carey.In her work she’s using her customary materials – such as ash, paracetamol, blood, cement – these are reduced to their simplest form: a powder or dust. On the picture you see the use of blood – which has been dried and ground before being spread on the floor – makes for a meditation on the body; here being, laid bare, the actual stuff of life. I like the work because I know with what kind of materials it’s produced.
