installation dimensions: 16 x 30 x 18″
video monitor, tabletop wine cellar, raw locally-sourced goat milk, mesophillic starter, penicillium candidum, rennet, salt, approximately five weeks

TURF TEAT CURD RIND, 2011 is a visual poem that presents the transfiguration of grass to a soft-ripened goat cheese. The process is chronicled in a slideshow atop a repurposed wine cellar where, during the course of the exhibition, fresh goat cheese made by the artist will ripen and develop a bloomy rind. The alchemy of digestion is considered at several stages: grass by goat, goat milk by rennet, curd by bacillus, cheese by human.

 

 

 

Bertrand Delacroix Gallery is pleased to presentThe Pleasure of Slowness, a group exhibition that examines the concept of slowness, in the physicality of the process.

The show will feature works by Marina Abramović, Walead Beshty, Guglielmo Achille Cavellini, Christo, Joseph Cornell, Quisqueya Henriquez, Nancy Hwang, Nikki Lee, Elaine Tin Nyo, Roxy Paine, Cindy Sherman, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Miho Suzuki.
