Tracey Adams and Virginia Folkestad: Primordial Soup
November 17, 2018 – February 3, 2019
Tracey Adams and Virginia Folkestad collaborate to create a site-specific immersive installation entitled Primordial Soup.
In 2014, artist Tracey Adams discovered the work of Dr. Roger Linington, a professor of chemistry at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. Linington’s Lab collects and studies ocean specimens, evaluating their potential use in drug development and biomedical research. Fascinated with his discoveries, Adams decided to delve into the world of marine microbiology as a source of inspiration for her artistic practice. Adams and sculptor Virginia Folkestad collaborate on a site-specific Sandbox Project for the ICA that explores marine microorganisms and their healing potential.
