Rainbow Loom

Rainbow Loom

彩虹幻象

Rainbow Loom, two solo exhibitions by American artist Suzanne Anker, addresses the intersections between nature’s products to those manufactured by science and industry. At V Art Center, specimens from nature are accompanied by those of synthetic origin. The installation, in accord with the color wheel and its variations of chroma, points to the wonder of life’s diversity. Tomatoes, spices, herbs, eggs and insects and other specimens are juxtaposed with steel wool, beads, and paper among various industrial products to produce small still life configurations.  Each arrangement is displayed in a petri dish, a glass apparatus commonly employed in scientific laboratory experiments. The installation is an array of 400 elements exposing the rich and luminous colors inherent in the contemporary world. The exhibition opens on October 11 and runs through November 25, 2014.

The exhibition begins at SNAP, where projected video and photographs on silk document a coral research laboratory in Florida in the USA.  Mote laboratory is a research institute experimenting on restoring coral and developing a genetic seed bank to classify these animals. Coral reefs, which create habitats for numerous plants and animals, are under siege throughout the world. These images present indoor tanks, as healing factories, for these beautiful creatures, which at a later time will be released into the wild. This exhibition opens on October 9 and runs through October 25, 2014.
