Amie Siegel: Strata

For her first solo show in London, New York-based artist Amie Siegel presents recent works exploring the mechanisms through which objects and materials become imbued with value. Exhibited on an impressive scale in the main gallery, Quarry, 2015 traces the transition of marble from its excavation at the deepest underground quarry in the world, to its almost inevitable use in the interiors of modern luxury apartments in Manhattan skyscrapers. Beautiful, formally rigorous and underpinned by a dramatic orchestral soundtrack, Quarry draws us into a mesmerising expose of the multi-layered relationships between art, labour and value. Fetish, 2016 shown in the first floor galleries, further reveals the complexity of these relationships by focusing on Sigmund Freud's personal collection of archaeological statues and artefacts. Filmed at the Freud Museum in north London, it portrays the nighttime cleaning of the psychoanalyst's collection, suggesting echoes between the intimate, unveiling practices of object care and the ritualistic disclosures of analysis which are normally hidden from view.
