This exhibition explored the traditional genre of still life and how it is a sustained practice within contemporary visual art making. The number of artists and works was large for the exhibition spaces of the Contemporary Art Gallery, and yet it seemed small in relation to the subject. The quantity of works reflected this genre’s continued importance in current art production and discourse, and was conceptually tied to conventional formal aspects of still life, gathering together many objects for contemplation.

STILL LIFE was published in conjunction with the exhibition Triumphant Carrot: The Persistence of Still Life, and contains essays by Evan Lee, Jenifer Papararo and Trevor Mahovsky. Jenifer Papararo looks at the continued relevance of this genre and its relation to the development of the avant-garde. Also included are texts by two of the artists in the exhibition. Trevor Mahovsky draws parallels between recent theoretical interests in the everyday and the value of still life; and Evan Lee uses the dollar store to discuss the complex relations between the consumption of objects and what a still life represents.
