Normal Flora
Nicole Clouston
6 January – 6 March 2016

Nicole Clouston puts the AGYU vitrines under the microscope and examines the world of bacterial growth. Normal Flora transforms these exhibition spaces into large petri dishes full of active nutrient agar. Yeast, mold, and microorganisms are the material for the sculptural forms that makes visible the precarious ecosystems that are under the surface of our skins.

Nicole Clouston obtained her MFA from the University of Victoria and is currently a PhD candidate in Visual Arts at York University. She has exhibited in Victoria, Edmonton, Montreal, and most recently at Nuit Blanche in Toronto. She received the SSHRC Canada Graduate Research Scholarship, the Anne Lazare-Mirvish Award, and the Robert S. & Muriel A. Raguin Graduate Scholarship.
