Even the continents have no place but earth

The title of this exhibition is borrowed from a poem by Canadian poet and philosopher Jan Zwicky, The Geology of Norway, which explores the discrepancy between logical language and the ineffable, how we struggle to find and express meaning. These tensions are reflected in Judd’s affinity for the factual: collecting scientific imagery, maps, charts, and geological illustrations, all the while mining for poetry in the language of scientific description. She is         particularly compelled by how such representations can strip away emotional and relational complexity, and how metaphor and materiality can restore a nuanced understanding to what is and is not. The installation of the contiguous prints and paper sculptures disrupt scale, develop new relationships, and facilitate a metamorphosis of materials.

Sometimes the movement of the earth is evident in large catastrophic events, but we must not forget it is always moving, small imperceptible shifts under our feet. The scale of the shift, the crack, the fracture: does it go unnoticed or does it take your feet out from under you?
