Natalie Christensen and Jim Eyre: TOGETHER/APART
March 11, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Turner Carroll Gallery will open an exhibition for collaborative team Natalie Christensen and Jim Eyre on March 11, 2022. TOGETHER / APART is the product of a long-time, international collaboration debuting a new, dynamic body of photo collage and sculpture. Opening on the two year anniversary of the pandemic, this exhibition will be on view at Turner Carroll Gallery, 725 Canyon Road, Santa Fe, New Mexico until April 17, 2022.
In March, 2020, Natalie Christensen (USA) and Jim Eyre (UK), like many of us around the world, retreated from their daily routines into their homes for an unprecedented period of time. During the prolonged lockdowns, they relied more than ever on the digital arena for connection, support, and psychological survival. During this extraordinary experience, time fell in on itself and one day was unrecognizable from the next. Covid-19 radically altered the world, causing us all to recognize the unpredictability of everything we had once believed unshakable.
Eyre in London, and Christensen in Santa Fe, began to create collaborative photo collages and sculptures based on conversations between the artists about everyday existence on opposite sides of the world. Architectural fragments and elements of the landscape from each of their homes are entwined to present their shared experience. Christensen and Eyre created intentional chaos through the mediums of photography, film, and sculpture as a way of grasping for order, healing, and catharsis in an increasingly unfamiliar world.
