From Transart Foundation:
“BEING AND EVERYTHING: Works by Dawn DeDeaux is the culmination of DeDeaux’s six month residency at Transart. For this exhibition DeDeaux utilizes the galleries as a staging lab to complete works for the final rooms in her upcoming Career Retrospective at New Orleans Museum of Art – The Space Between Worlds – opening October 1, 2021 concurrent with the city’s international triennial Prospect.5.
BEING AND EVERYTHING includes both new works-in-progress and works from DeDeaux’s past fifteen years influenced by cataclysmic events – Hurricane Katrina, the BP Oil Spill and Louisiana’s vanishing coastline, the fastest eroding landmass in the world. DeDeaux’s Transart exhibition focuses on raw materiality and the elements of earth, water, air, and fire. She utilizes discarded shards of contemporary culture — either digital assemblages of eroding, name-escaping tools, or the residue of dirt, coal, water and glass incorporated in her installations. The exhibition is accompanied by introductory essays by Surpik Angelini, Dan Cameron and Roberto Tejada.”
