The Exhibition: “All Tomorrow’s Parties” curated by Michael Slenske features Nadeau’s installation “The Golden Teacher,” which operates as an altar and talisman, celebrating the mushroom as an intelligent conduit for knowledge: Something special, other worldly and mysterious. Sacred in presentation, Nadeau wanted to ritualize the object. The light box’s seductive glow illuminates the psilocybin beautiful varying forms cast in resin. By making the organic encapsulated material eternal, Nadeau displays its powerful, secretive, seductive nature.
The Artist: Trained in industrial design and a fifth generation craftsman, NY/CA-based Nicole Nadeau’s work blends the manufactured with natural materials and techniques to create conceptual installations & sculptures. Select Press: Vanity Fair, Whitewall, Dezeen, Autre
