Sinistra, 2020




Lending a psychedelic edge to medieval botanical imagery, taxidermy, and institutional taxonomical displays, this unraveling fossil is posited as an artifact of a memory, tethered to a surface and made viewable from a distance. McCormack utilizes this body of work as a means of processing traumatic recollections, through the act of painstakingly generating and then literally pinning each sculpture into a static composition, recontextualizing moments of grief, terror, and rage as beautiful specimens. The distinction between the viewer and the object is reinforced by notions such as fabrication versus reality, inauthenticity versus accuracy, and animation versus death. This fiber sculpture is outfitted with hanging hardware.
