Salt Experiments by Tracey Clement is an exhibition of sculptural objects created through experiments with salt.
“My Salt Experiments are the remnants of a four-year-long investigation into the properties of salt and its collision with mild steel. These experiments were conducted in the realm of art, rather than science, but they still offer valuable knowledge. Specifically, they highlight the important fact that nature is a resilient and powerful force that does not do our bidding. I’ve completed my material investigation, but the experiments themselves are ongoing. They continue to react and change without any input from me, an apt and humbling metaphor for our relative insignificance in the greater scheme of things.”
