Inflected objects

Samara Scott (1984, England) currently lives and works in London where she has completed her MA at Royal College of Art in 2011. In the past, Scott has referred to her art as a “trembling, putrid glitter.” And indeed, her visually striking, colorful sculptures and installations consist of a wide range of materials ranging from fluid to perishable, organic to mass-produced, featuring such things as white wine and nail polish, toothpaste and fabric softener, baking trays and bath salts. Sitting between beauty and decay, sparkling and rotting, visual celebration and heaps of trash, her works speak of the lure and repulsion of a consumer culture in which just about everything can be bought. Scott has had solo shows at Frieze London, Eastside Projects Birmingham at the Zabludowicz Collection London and her work has been shown as part of group shows at, for instance, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, South London Gallery, Kumu Museam Tallin Estonia, Silvia Cintra, Rio de Janeiro, Rowing Projects, Palazzo Peckham, Venice.
