COLLAGE ON VIEW
Melissa Pokorny: SEEP
at SHED Gallery in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
11-30 June 2022
“SEEP” is a solo experience and exhibition by Melissa Pokorny, who creates sculptural works that question ways of knowing the world and illuminate the invisible, intangible, and knotty attachments between temporal, geographical, and material things.
The sense of place also informs the artist’s work. Cultural and natural histories connected to landscapes are typically unseen, or overlooked–rendered invisible through time, scale, willful erasure, or simply by becoming a too-familiar part of the background. Similarly, the auras that objects hold through their attachments to place and time foster correspondingly ghostly presences. Pokorny is motivated by these aspects of context that, when combined, tease out new narratives and unexpected connections.
