Shadow In The Landscape
Marilyn Dammann Memorial Exhibition
4 - 17 June 2005
FRONT Artspace 79 Ryrie Street Geelong AUSTRALIA
Marilyn Dammann, American environmental artist, sculptor and artistbook maker, died suddenly on May 22, leaving a large void in the mailart network and the field of environmental art. This exhibition, a homage from the archive of Field Study International, features artistbooks, documentations of installations and correspondence spanning over a decade.
Marilyn referred to herself as SHADOW, an expression of how she worked with nature. Rather than transforming natural materials into artifacts, she worked in the environment and her mark was no more than a trace; she created temporary installations that change with time and the effect of the elements.
This exhibition is the first time such a large body of Marilyn's work has been shown in Australia. It features many of her interventions in nature and the SHADOW at work.
