Ph.D. student Catherine Czacki presents new work commissioned by and accumulated for the Los Angeles art space JOAN – in their upper gallery level vitrine project room. Old natures haunt addresses alchemy and arrangement of materials; in addition to the malleable nature of intrinsic value, utilitarian value and taxonomic ordering.

'This compacted petroleum will outlast – dinosaur bones distilled, old nature haunting in new processed forms. Melting, sinking, disintegrating, pulverizing – waiting – bubbling up, exploding, emerging, returning.'
