Eating Flowers
Sensations of Cig Harvey

Cig Harvey, The Screen Door, Warren, Maine, 2013

This exhibition is the first solo museum presentation in the United States of contemporary artist Cig Harvey. Spanning photography, video, mixed media and the written word, Harvey’s creative practice explores the physical and emotional boundaries of the senses.

Cig Harvey, Emily and the Falcon, Camden, Maine, 2018 / Apple Tree in Winter, 2018

Cig Harvey, Deep Bay, Self Portrait, North Shore Bermuda

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.

 

Cig Harvey, Emie in the Truck, Rockport, Maine, 2008

Cig Harvey, Kendall at Beauchamp, c. 2014

Cig Harvey, Scout in the Blizzard, 2017

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.

Eating Flowerstakes its title from an original work commissioned for the show which will be installed in the museum’s seaside sculpture gardens.
