Nature & Autres Anomalies
Check out Yedda Morrison's website featuring works from her upcoming show in Montreal, "Nature & Autres Anomalies." Among a hand-full of younger contemporary poets and visual artists, Morrison is pushing the envelope of her visual and language-based art practice, which is devoted to an examination of natural exploitation in relation to the subjugation of women and "others." In her work, the treatment of nature (both imaginal and real) becomes a thin limit for a viable human rights and fair labor practices. Her work proves language (both visual and word-based) to be utterly complicit with ecological welfare and justice as it extends justice among a potential multitude.
