For her first major project this side of the Channel, Samara Scott (b. 1985, London) takes over the great nave of the CAPC, installing a huge artificial ceiling composed of beached debris. The public is invited to walk around and under it, to experience the dual identity of this large-scale alchemical collage, both digital and material, attractive and repulsive.
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art, London in 2011, Samara Scott has developed a practice fuelled by the context of hyper-consumerism. This has resulted in poisonously coloured installations made through ‘hijacking’ manufactured objects and organic or chemical by-products of mass production.
This exhibition is supported by Fluxus Art Projects, the Franco-British programme for contemporary art.
Programme of events
Through the duration of the exhibition you can take part in a series of events designed with Samara Scott : Catwalk with a fashion show of her creations, Dirty Weekend with the Dirty Art Foundation in Amsterdam in partnership with the EBABX, a giant yoga session. Samara Scott has also made a selection of videos and films by artists with a similar approach to creation.
