I wrote a review of Anatomia Botanica, Mathilde Roussel's exhibit at Cheekwood, for this week's Scene. I'd originally planned to write the review to coincide with the exhibit's opening back in March, but since the work is plant-based, I wanted to give it some time to get a little messy — it's more about the process of growing and the circle of life and all that.
I went to Cheekwood on three separate occasions to look at the work, and each time the work was dramatically different. I took a few photographs of my own on every visit, sort of like visual notes to help me keep track of what I just saw. The "Lifes of Grass" sculptures changed so quickly that the last time I was there (Wed., April 18), I overheard the maintenance crew talking about whether the work would actually stay intact through the exhibition's close in mid-May.
Check out some of the photographs I took of the Courtyard Gallery installation on opening day back in March, and compare them to the photos I took last week.
