bitforms gallery is pleased to announce its first New York solo exhibition with artist Marina Zurkow. Exhibited widely throughout the US and recognized recently with a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, Zurkow is known for cross-disciplinary animation work and her participatory art environments.
The exhibition Necrocracy explores “governance of the dead”, focusing on the geologic chronology of oil and the culture of petrochemical production. Featuring four new projects, it furthers Zurkow’s investigations of human relationships with animals, plants and weather. These works rigorously engage the politics of the body’s interrelationships with landscape, and question the Romantic-era division between the natural and human – specifically, how our society disturbs, worships and is dominated by beings that are long dead.
