ABOUT the show, Talcum Fables
Every piece of art in this show tells a story. Most are autobiographical, all are created by using unusual materials (including talcum powder), and all of the storytellers are women. While women’s issues are not the main focus of the show, there is a conscious feminine language established in the authenticity of each story. This language is communicated through the artists’ use of unexpected materials, and the viewers’ sensory interaction with those materials – the tactile, the fluid, the fuzzy, the powdery, the shiny. The works have been produced especially for this show, using varied media, including installation, painting, and photography. Curated by Off the Wall and Sabine Schlunk, managing gallery director.
ABOUT the artist group, Off the Wall
Off the Wall is a collective of artists who share a similar artistic language, a curiosity about materials, and are interested in creating work with personal resonance in a conceptual manner. The five group members met as students at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film. In 2005, they connected through their artwork and created an exhibition group. Talcum Fables is the group’s eleventh exhibition.
Talcum Fables was recently reviewed in the Nashville Scene, by Russell Johnston. Read review here.
