This event has ended.
Hugh Scott-Douglas introduces two new bodies of work entitled “Natural History” and “Forms of Nature,” which address symptoms of human impact on the natural environment and the sites of collective imagination that function to soothe and deny subsequent anxieties. In keeping with the rest of his practice, the artist works between digital and analog technologies that are both self-reflexive and responsive to their respective subjects.
Scott-Douglas’s last exhibition in Japan at the Tochigi Prefectural Museum of Fine Art in 2016 marked what would become first in a lineage of thematic explorations of nature and its relationship to capitalism. This exhibition continues the conceptual arc as the third chapter, using the concept of the city to localize the elusive element of the collective imaginary that propels and sustains the difficult relationship of the natural environment with industry and capital.
