Claire Anna Watson
Endocardium

Join Claire Anna Watson on an exploration of contemporary culture's relationship to foodstuffs and the impact of scientific interventions on the natural world. In her work, Endocardium, the cabbage, a mundane and uninteresting vegetable, holds the artist’s fascination as a sculptural object. Unveiling its gnarled and freakish core, through a systematic unwrapping, Watson exposes this most banal of vegetables to know it more intimately.
