Rachel Pimm @ Whitechapel Gallery
14 January 2020 - 9 August 2020
Plates is based on field work undertaken in Ethiopia and Northern Ireland by artist Rachel Pimm with a soundtrack by Lori E. Allen. For this commission, the artists create a visual and sonic topography with words, images and sounds that have been collected from an archive of self-similar images of biological, geological and physical matter. The space becomes an index of ‘plates’, representing materials located around volcanic landscapes such as the Giants Causeway (Northern Ireland) and the Afar Triangle (Ethiopia), geological sites where minerals, salts and lava boil to the crust making dynamic, continually fluctuating landscapes.
