Rosemary Holliday Hall

Rosemary Holliday Hall is a transdisciplinary artist whose evolving projects explore conceptions of nature, time, and perception through a wide range of media and collaborations. In Hall’s Enclyclia imagosis the artist relates the physical process of metamorphosis as a means of investigating the various ways in which we make sense of the world and relate to ourselves and others through imagination, metaphor, and material. These sculptures consist of diaphanous oxidized fabric stretched across a steel rod frame, evoking the metallic gold casing of insect chrysalises. Hall made these artworks to imagine what it would be like to be a caterpillar in a self-made structure, whose purpose was to hold her disintegrated body as it transforms into another body.
