It’s difficult to know where to begin when it comes to the work of American artist Taryn Simon. The complex, systematic and detailed nature of her practice, as evidenced in her current exhibition at Tate Modern A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters has been described variously as conceptual, scientific and thought-provoking if not profoundly philosophical in its explorations of the interconnectivity of life, fate, family, history and politics.
Artist and curator Una Rey writes about the exhibition 'Speaking in colour' that she curated for the Newcastle Gallery from their collection in March-May 2011. Her experience of working with Indigenous artists in Central Australia coloured her choices and her interpretations of them.
