Cig Harvey
Eating Flowers / Cig Harvey
Jul 18 – Oct 31, 2019
Ogunquit Museum
Maine, USA

Spanning photography, video, mixed media and the written word, Cig Harvey’s creative practice explores physical and emotional boundaries of the senses with vividly colored images and seductive vocabulary.

Her vividly colored images and seductive vocabulary combine to suggest dreamlike narratives informed by sensations of touch, taste, sight, sound, smell, and memory. Harvey draws inspiration from her life in Maine, and the work is on the one hand autobiographical, and on the other, a magical window onto a familiar and living landscape.

The exhibition is drawn from a selection of Harvey’s photographic projects from the past ten years, and refigured into an arrangement that privileges the feeling of life experience.

    Kunsthall Trondheim
    Trondheim, Norway

    In response to our home building’s former life as a fire station, and Trondheim’s history as a city shaped by blazes whose traces are still present in its design today, this group exhibition brings together artists who have been deeply touched and transformed through the challenges manifest in the burnt and burning. Hailing from diverse generations and backgrounds, these individuals converge to explore how flames have served as agents of change across time and space. (more…)
