Paths of Desire, Contemporary Art museum st. louis, usa

May 18 - August 5, 2007     

In her first solo museum exhibition in the United States, Irish artist Katie Holten joins the Contemporary as an artist-in-residence. The exhibition is a new site-specific indoor installation comprised of sculpture, drawings, and an outdoor performance that collectively explores global ecology and social gestures within moments of environmental crisis. Interested in our fragile ecology from an international perspective—while also considering local concerns—Holten’s work is a creative, aesthetic proposition for community friendly solutions. Holten renders nature essential, and in the process asks individuals and communities to ponder their natural environment and consider human fragility in an uncertain future.
