Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery presents Dominique Paul’s Unnatural Selections
Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery (NYC) presents Dominique Paul’s Unnatural Selections
From December 12, 2013 through January 18, 2014, Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery is proud to present “Unnatural Selections,” the gallery’s first solo exhibition of Dominique Paul.
Using photographs and video work, Dominique Paul journeys through a plausible near-future where humans and animals adapt to survive. “Unnatual Selections” derives from three projects the artist undertook between 2010 and 2013: The Insects of Surinam, Migrations of the Arthropods, and Prometheus.
Dominique Paul lives and works in Montreal, Canada, where she received a Doctorate in the Study and Practice of Arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal, Canada (2009).
Paul’s thesis titled “Entre chair et lumière: actualité de la photographie” is to be published by Art Le Sabord Editions in 2014. She has an MFA from UNSW, Sidney, Australia. Her work has been shown throughout Canada, the United States, France, China and Japan, and is featured extensively in European and North American Publications.
In 2012, Paul was awarded an artist in residence with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) on Governors Island where the series Migrations of the Arthropods was created.
