From the Archive: Descent with Modification by Kirsten Sedore


Are we on a journey of extinction or redemption?

Kirsten Sedore asks big questions about the physical and psychological nature of the human relationship with the world.

The seven large, free standing paintings in Descent with Modification show a physical evolutionary progression through space. The viewer is invited to experience deeper involvement into the work by walking around each painting.

The series explores identity within the complications of domesticated western life and ask the question: have we doomed ourselves by creating a barrier of disconnect between our perceived needs and the rest of the world’s needs for survival?
