Zabludowicz Collection is pleased to present Holy Bark, a solo exhibition by London-based artist Victor Seaward. Touching on specific moments from the history of medicine, trade and industrialization, Seaward weaves narratives via the production of digitally rendered commonplace objects and organic forms.
The installation centres on the artist's recent sculptural work Oracle (Nocturne), a nest-like form hanging from the architectural beam of the exhibition space. Rendered using 3D modeling software and then 3D printed, the vessel encloses gelatinized tonic water glowing softly under UV light. Additionally, digitally rendered sculptural objects, including socks and life-sized insects, are strategically placed throughout the installation. Together this unique collection of works employs trompe l’oeil tactics to examine the narratives of the often-discarded materials of our everyday.
