Alison Postma

(of an organism or a part) is a sculpture and video installation shown at the Canadian Opera Company's 2017 Operanation and presented by The Drake. The project pulls objects from the imagined back store-rooms of natural historians and ethnographers studying the future of the past. The objects are human-made but become playful in the way they interact with one another.

The sculptures act as an extension of the timeline and spaces in the video. While the video contains many severed clips, in the sculptures we see familiar objects and interactions that allow for additional context.
