Anya Gallaccio, preserve ‘beauty’, 1991-2003, gerberas, glass, metal and rubber, Tate

Gallaccio is known for her work with organic materials such as ice, flowers, fruits and sugar. Her installations often change over time as they melt, decompose or sprout new life. In preserve ‘beauty’ 2000 gerberas are sandwiched between huge panes of glass and left to wither and rot. Gallaccio has described gerberas as a ‘disposable commodity’, mass-produced all year round. Her work challenges romantic ideas of nature and culture, life and death. This was first displayed in the window of a London gallery, where it became a metaphor for Gallaccio’s perception of the male-dominated art scene.

I have seen this artwork and surprisingly, it doesn’t smell as much as you’d think it would!

As I’m writing a paper on the relationship between drawing and performance— I’m inspired to share this with you all today: Heather Hansen’s charcoal drawing series titled “Emptied Gestures.” Here Hansen employs the dual conditions of the word drawing as a noun, and as a verb. Hansen described the series as “an experiment in kinetic drawing,” and explains,”I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and creating something new in the process.”
