Margo Wolowiec ‘Still Water, Circling Palms’ at Marlborough Contemporary
Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to present Still Water, Circling Palms, a solo exhibition by Detroit-based artist Margo Wolowiec, opening June 21. Though we perceive them as paintings, these works, ranging from modest in scale to immersive panoramas, are in fact loom-woven cloth infused with images via dye-sublimation transfer. Constructed from amalgamations of images, forecast graphics and texts related to recent catastrophic storms and their aftermath, they draw a line between the realities of climate change, its causes, and broader implications for our society. In particular, Wolowiec connects the real-time subjugation of women in a patriarchal system to continued environmental debasement. Furthermore, correlating to their method of collection from online sources, the images illuminate the vulnerabilities of social networks and the media as magnifiers of false information regarding weather events and news in general.
