DESCRIPTION

Chris Ritson will be creating/growing an installation from organic refuse and crystal that will set the stage for video created on-site which will rely on growth and decay of organic crystal sculptures to animate a revisited account of the decadent narrative found in J.K. Huysmans’ novel Against Nature(Á Rebours). Published in 1884, the French novel is recognized as the most iconic example of literature associated with the “decadent” movement.
