    PRESS RELEASE:

    TOTEM
    BOO SAVILLE
    5th February – 13th March
    Private View Thursday 4th February, 7-9pm

    Trolley Gallery is proud to present a second solo show by artist Boo Saville. Entitled ‘Totem’, this new body of work encapsulates the unifying anthropological and archeological aspects evident in her work, and her representation of the deceased captured through an exploration of various forms of mark-making, itself a reflection of human expression and representation.

    Saville constantly researches source material from a wide variety of documentary and scientific origins; books, journals and resources such as the Wellcome Institute. The internet also offers an almost limitless exploration of imagery and keywords, the small, often low resolution images becoming the direct subject matter in the final work, where the colours and often gnarled compositions of a deceased human translate into a delicate and detailed painting and drawing. “There is beauty and creativity in the process of destruction. I am interested in decay not as a negative reduction but as a unifying symbol of matter, of our bodies. There is a clarity for me when something is stripped down to the bare bones and studied or just observed.”

    The anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss argued that human thought was equal in both Western civilized and savage minds, while the use of a totem, or a physical representation to project a figurehead in tribes, was only in the absence of their understanding of ‘abstract entities’. Here, Saville’s subject matter varies from a nineteenth-century explorer preserved under the ice, the terrain of the skin rendered as visible as the striped cotton shirt he wears, to tribal shrunken heads in the tropics, Egyptian mummies, and twentieth century forensic photographs of death scenes. In the absence of a traditional totemic figure, we interpret the various geographical and chronological locations of Saville’s human subjects as incorporating this idea of a ‘totem’, a classification system and a unifying kinship that brings together the life form apparent in death.
