NOME is pleased to present Kirsten Stolle’s first solo show in Europe, “Proceed at Your Own Risk”.
Kirsten Stolle (b. 1967, USA) explores the relationships between economy and ecology in her subversive collage works, which take ideas and imagery from post-war America as a
springboard into the environmental politics of today. NOME will exhibit a selection of Stolle’s recent collages from the ongoing series „Monsanto Intervention“ and „Animal Pharm“.
Through eloquent amalgams of scientific imagery and textual redactions, Stolle asks viewers to reconsider the connection between powerful corporate interests, public health, and food consumption. „Monsanto Intervention“ détournes the 1950s advertisements of this genetical engineering company, which markets itself as “sustainable agriculture”. „Animal Pharm“ plays on the title of George Orwell’s satirical novel to challenge the use of animals in genetic testing by the pharmaceutical industry.
