Samara Scott has been commissioned to develop an ambitious new body of work. This is her first solo show in a publicly funded gallery in the UK and the largest project she has undertaken to date. Scott’s works contain all passages of what follows the first contact of the consumer experience, from the touch to mastication to assimilation and finally dispersal.
The elements that constitute her work appear in spontaneous configuration, slipping between infusions of nature and artificial imitation, antiquity and plasticity, synthetic import and organic craft class, the materiality mish-mashes a trickled down Art History into an interior language of disposable nostalgia and melancholy.
