Location: ISCP’s Project Space

Naomi Campbell investigates issues pertaining to science and nature through her interdisciplinary practice, employing a wide variety of techniques and mediums including glass, x-rays, metal, ink, and even corn to compose sculptures, drawings, paintings, and mixed media installations. For The Consonant of Noise, she creates a braille pattern of corn kernels running across the gallery walls, and a sculptural installation on the floor, alluding to the global food crisis in which corn is paramount. As in the allegory of Plato’s Cave, she suggests how blind we are to reality, in this case, to the effects of the global food economy and genetic engineering on the world’s food supplies.

Naomi Campbell has been a Ground Floor resident at ISCP since July 1, 2015. She has exhibited work at institutions throughout the world including The Center for Contemporary Art, Bedminster Township, New Jersey; MUSE Center for Photography and the Moving Image, New York; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her work is in permanent collections at MTA Arts for Transit, New York and The New York Public Library, amongst others.

This exhibition is coordinated by Alexandra Friedman, Program Coordinator.
