Aldwyth: Work v. / Work n. Collage and Assemblage 1991- 2009
Presented by Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, Charleston, SC
October 23, 2009 – January 9, 2010
This exhibition marked the first major retrospective of the collage and assemblage artist Aldwyth. Now in her 70’s, Aldwyth lives and works in an octagonal house on the edge of a salt marsh on one of South Carolina’s sea islands. Aldwyth: Work v. / Work n. featured fifty-two collage and assemblage works created within the past two decades. A film by John Reynolds with commissioned soundtrack by Bill Carson accompanies the exhibition, documenting the artist’s interaction with many three dimensional works. The Halsey Institute has also published a full color, 112-page exhibition catalogue.
