Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records

Text by Adrienne Edwards, Philip Hoare.

Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records

Accidental Records includes new paintings and drawings by Ellen Gallagher (born 1965) that continue her exploration of the complex histories of the Black Atlantic and the afterlives of the Middle Passage. Widely associated with a resurgence in this diasporic critical space, Gallagher has developed her own genre of history painting which makes us question our geographies. The slowly layered surfaces of her work become a kind of reckoning, the way sailors mark their locations at sea, determined to return. Alongside views of Gallagher’s artworks and portraits of the artist working in her studio, texts are included by Adrienne Edwards, curator at Performa and the Walker Art Center, and Philip Hoare, a writer whose books include Leviathan or, The Whale and The Sea Inside. The book accompanies Gallagher’s solo show at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles.

In 'Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records' radical aesthetic possibilities emerge from seismic cracks in the surface of things

"Dr. Blowfin’s Black Storm" (2014) is reproduced from Accidental Records, a concise but powerful artist's book by Ellen Gallagher that doubles as the catalogue to her recent exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, Los Angeles, where she presented new works dealing with the history of the four-century triangular slave trade known as the Middle Passage. "Whether through her playful photomontages, or glistening veneered black paintings, or chromatic Sea Bed paintings (featured here), Ellen Gallagher provides vectors to consider the ways in which abstraction, Orientalist genre painting, and desire converge as portraits of historical, social and personal imaginaries," Adrienne Edwards writes. "Her speculative approach sieves a broad range of seemingly incommensurable references as concrete fragments that we cannot easily trace or fully comprehend, but nevertheless, must. She engages the paradoxes she sets up and upon which she depends through a mode of archaeological extraction of history and matter. In her artworks, Gallagher relies upon what she has described as a 'jitter,' a mode of becoming in which radical aesthetic possibilities emerge from seismic cracks in the surface of things; connoting unsteady movement, unreliability, impossible alignments, blind spots and opacity as a means of escape and flight." continue to blog
