> DESCRIPTION

DiverseWorks ArtSpace is proud to present Necrocracy, an immersive exhibition exploring nature and petrochemical production that combines video animation, drawings, and sculpture by Brooklyn-based artist Marina Zurkow. In the space, the public is invited to explore a labyrinth-like landscape, populated with an array of petroleum-based artworks including large banner-size drawings of oil-derived products interspersed with Hazmat suits for children. A series of new animated video works visualize interactions between humans and nature that arise out of oil drilling in West Texas. In addition, a collateral materials lab provides a space for further public engagement around issues of oil and landscape. The exhibition runs in conjunction with NeoGeo, an installation of software-driven moving image animations by Marina Zurkow and Daniel Shiffman, in the flickerlounge and curated by Aurora Picture Show.
