Finding the Forgotten is the culmination of the two-month social practice residency of artist and ethnoautobiographer River Jackson-Paton. Integrating nature, culture and self-identity, Jackson-Paton has reclaimed the discarded, thrown away, and overlooked.
Through a series of public events and expressive art objects, they have made connections between the community, local waterways, embodiment practices, and the rejected. By assembling found objects, they have created reflections on how we view our bodies and interact with our environment. Jackson-Paton’s purpose in this residency has been to integrate the shadow in our environment, garbage, and our dis-embodied selves through beauty and play.
Join us in Sunset’s experimental studio space to celebrate this new work.
