Susanna Carlisle + Bruce Hamilton’s Untitled comprises a scallop shell that holds a luminescent duratrans (color transparency film on glass). The image depicts a video still of a dancer’s improvisation which is also projected when activated by light onto the horizontal surface on which it occupies. This artwork is unique and was created specifically for this auction.
“The sculpture combines a scallop shell found on the coast of Maine with a duratran image. Throughout history shells have provided offerings in many forms such as food, currencies, jewelry, and works of art including Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. The shell we are incorporating has been turned upside down and the woman is on the ground, perhaps a metaphor for the times in which we are living.” – Susanna Carlisle + Bruce Hamilton
