Fluid Matters, Grounded Bodies: Decolonizing Ecological Encounters
Upcoming exhibition 2023
Location: Gallery 360
Northeastern University Gallery 360, Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, USA
“Throwing light onto the unnatural, reflecting on and exploring new connections with non-human systems.”
This group show is curated by Valérie Hallier at Westbeth Gallery, NYC. Unnatural Processes is an exhibition that asks the questions: What is “Nature”? What is “Natural”?
Artists: Aston Philip, Christina Massey, Jean Foos, Katherine Bennett, Linda Loh, Roxane Revon, Tessa Grundon and Valérie Haller.
"Nature is an all encompassing entity that exists without humans. Yet, it is impossible to think of humanity as an entity that could exist without nature. Seeing humanity and all its actions as part of nature is more reasonable. French anthropologist, Philippe Descola, observes 4 ways of “being” in the world as humans: animism, totemism, analogism and naturalism. If we agree that our thought processes are firmly welded into Western philosophy, prizing the rational, scientific, and logical, we can then agree that we embody naturalism. Yet as artists we are open to other ways of being, thinking, and seeing. The work of the eight international artists featured in this show revisits our contemporary relationship with the non-human. A great variety of mediums and processes are all centered around new ways to visualize and interact with our environment: virtual, real, or re-created."
NYU Gallatin: Artist in Residence
NYU Gallatin Artist in Residence. 2021-2022
Gallatin WetLab, Governors Island, NYC
The NYU Gallatin WetLab on Governors Island is an experimental art-science laboratory for students, artists, and researchers to create, develop, and display collaborative projects across the environmental arts and sciences.
Urban Soil Institute: Artist in Residence
Urban Soil Institute, Artist in Residence, 2020-2023.
Governors Island, NYC
The Urban Soil Institute is headquartered on Governors Island, where they host scientist-artist residencies and curate public programs, and work on a landfill-turned-National Park, where they conduct research, lab-work and offer courses.
USI maintains a residency space in the Urban Soils Room at Swale House, on Governors Island fostering collaboration between artists and soil scientists and featuring public engagement.
Swale: Artist in Residence
About Swale: "Swale is a floating food forest built atop a barge that travels to public piers in New York City welcoming visitors to harvest herbs, fruits and vegetables for free.
Swale strives to enhance the quality and responsible use of public waterways and land; works to encourage New Yorkers to reconsider our relationships with environmental ecosystems; and change perceptions and policies to increase the presence of edible perennial landscapes.
From 2016 - 2020 the first version of Swale circumnavigated New York’s harbor. The floating food forest closed during the pandemic; its new iteration is being designed as a more permanent structure called Lotic Shoal. Lotic Shoal is being co-designed with Pratt Architecture students and the guidance of many practitioners including engineer Rik Van Hemmen. It will launch in the summer of 2024."
Artists Space, Teaching Artist
Artists Space, Teaching Artist 2022-2023
Expanded Art Ideas Program with PS 140.
Projects worked on include "The Sound of Water" and "What We Do When A Door Opens."
Artists Space is a nonprofit art organization and gallery in downtown NYC.
"Founded in 1972 in downtown Manhattan, Artists Space fosters the artistic and cultural life of New York City as a primary venue for artists' work in all forms. An affinity with emerging ideas and artists is central to our institution, as is attentiveness to the social and intellectual concerns which actively inform artistic practice. We strive for exemplary conditions in which to produce, experience, and understand art, to be a locus of critical discourse and education, and to advocate for the capacity of artistic work to significantly define and reflect our understanding of ourselves."
"Expanded Art Ideas Programs, Artists Space’s arts education program, was founded in 2001 with the mission of encouraging mainstream and special education students in New York City’s public schools to develop a personal artistic voice and to utilize their individual creative capacities. It does this by providing students with the skills to communicate, document, and publicly exhibit their work. Expanded Art Ideas equally widens Artists Space’s commitment to contemporary artists by providing the opportunity for artists to work and collaborate with different communities in an educational setting."
Two person exhibition with Tessa Grundon and Gene Kiegel.
On view weekends through July 31, 2022 at New York Virtual Volcano Observatory, Colonels Row Building 410A, Governors Island, NYC
"Picture a cross-section of earth, layered with the unconformities and fractures of geologic time. In Emergent Strata, Tessa Grundon and Gene Kiegel uncover these layers, their vestiges and sediments, in landscapes: along the contour lines of a riverbank, through the intricate architecture of bees and their waxy walls, and in the negative space of industrial ruins. Colors pour forth from geological folds, seams, and formations; this work allows us to see these compressed worlds, cross-cutting and overlapping the relative time of humans and nonhumans in the earth-record."
The Dream: Saturnia Film Festival, Italy
THE DREAM environmental art exhibition at Saturnia Film Festival with SHIM Eco group.
Location: Fortezza Orsini, Toscany, Saturnia, Italy
June 6, 2022- August 2, 2022
"THE DREAM will take place in a castle called Fortezza Orsini. The exhibit will be a sustainable, low carbon footprint art event aligned to the Saturnia Film Festival. The participants will seek to avoid any air freight for art objects. It emphasizes group participation and artists who practice focus on interactive, performative and video related actions. The visual objects will focus on themes that are curated by concepts of Air, Water, and Fire. All art will be archived on the SHIM Artsy page to allow for sales unrelated to work that would normally be shipped. This is the future — responsible and enjoyable; low cost and low stress.
"The Saturnia Film Festival is a benchmark in international emerging filmmakers and the audience is made up of professionals and film enthusiasts. The focus of the artistic committee, will be directed to select works that address universal themes that are personal and authentic."
Fluid Matters, Grounded Bodies: Decolonizing Ecological Encounters
Fluid Matters, Grounded Bodies: Decolonizing Ecological Encounters Exhibition
Location:NYU Gallatin Galleries, 1 Washington Pl, New York, NY 10003
July 22 – August 17, 2022
Featured Artists: Farah Al Qasimi, Beatriz Cortez, micha cárdenas, Tessa Grundon, Joiri Minaya, Ada M. Patterson, Himali Singh Soin, and Alexis Rider
"Historically, colonial enterprises have violently linked land- and water-scapes with the bodies of women and femmes, queer people, and people of color in order to dehumanize them. By becoming dirt and water, such bodies have been equated with “natural” resources, made vulnerable to exploitation, extraction, and land theft justified along lines of race, gender, and sexuality. Yet such linkages, particularly in recent years, have been meaningfully appropriated by artists as acts of resistance that articulate new futures and magnify marginalized histories. Presenting the work of Farah Al Qasimi, Beatriz Cortez, micha cárdenas, Tessa Grundon, Joiri Minaya, Ada M. Patterson, Himali Singh Soin, and Alexis Rider, Fluid Matters, Grounded Bodies: Decolonizing Ecological Encounters engages with complex questions around impermanence, belonging, transformation, and erasure as they relate to human (and non-human) lives and the earth itself. The works of these artists are ecologically conscious, while their self-reflective, collaborative artistic practices emphasize notions of kinship as central to their counter-historical work."
Fragile Rainbow: Traversing Habitats
"The exhibition’s title, 'Fragile Rainbow: Traversing Habitats,' found inspiration in the show's largest artwork, Claire McConaughy’s painting Fragile Rainbow (2021). In her words, McConaughy’s sanguine waterscape addresses “interconnection, loss, transformation, and hope.” Her title is especially relevant for this heterogeneous exhibition of artworks by ecoartspace members based in the New York City region whose paintings, sculptures, photographs, and installations evoke “connection, loss, transformation, and hope.” These artists are especially conscious of our indebtedness to living beings in our midst and human beings’ obligation to appreciate and protect organic and inorganic matter alike.
In recent history, the unsustainable environmental dynamics of Western cultures have intensified with the creation of contemporary cities and urban life. As a result, people have grown increasingly distanced from the land, leaving some 75% of Earth’s terrain substantially degraded. For this exhibition, we invite visitors to acknowledge their relationship with the land in a manner that aims to be more aligned with longstanding Indigenous perspectives that consider the earth, plants and animals family, even within urban settings. When experienced collectively, these artworks can remind us that we are embedded in and must be conscious of our contributions to our habitat. When we walk in the woods, we become part of the forest, yet when we walk on the sidewalk, we are no less walking on land."
Occupy #3 with Shim Eco, Exhibition at Greek Consulate & French Embassy NYC. 2022
Occupy #3 ~ Networks will be on view from February 17 through March 17, 2022 at The Consulate General of France New York, 934 Fifth Avenue, between 74th/75th Streets, NY
"Occupy Networks, a collective of over 100 independent artists and curators, was invited to ‘occupy’ the Consulate General of France in New York. The artists and curators of this exhibition have all lived or worked in France.
The pieces of art are curated taking into account the daily interaction between the exhibit and the work of Consulate’s staff. They respond to socio-political changes, adopt an activist approach or aim to reverse hierarchies and provide a better representation for artistic minorities (immigrant artists, artists in reintegration, parents, etc.).
Occupy Art Project #3 was initiated by Eirini Linardaki, who invited fifteen curatorial projects to occupy Consulates in New York."
Simon Benjamin, Keith Edmier, Tessa Grundon, Jemila MacEwan, and Hanae Utamura
With work by WetLab students Rhea Barve, Jesse McLaughlin, and Kris Waymire
Curated by Eugenia Kisin and Karen Holmberg
"A shrine propitiating fungi ancestors, a jellyfish adorned with microplastic regalia, an apothecary of healing tinctures made from disappearing landscapes – these and other restorative structures inhabit the layered timescales of this place as ruin. Working against time, the artists in Contretemps ask us to engage with collective loss through care, feeding, and reverence. Refusing to remain in the moment of mishap, they hold in common signs of quiet emergence and flourishing after disaster. These slow processes materialize in a geologic sigh caught in glass; wound in a tangle of willow branches, drawing out heavy metals from contaminated soil; in cores of coastline and diasporic detritus; and in the crown of a prehistoric cycad bloom, cradled in basalt.
Together, these artists encounter living matter in a state of ambivalence. Suspended between sadness, wonder, and repair, their works bear witness to post-human and posthumous emergence in the wake of human-made destruction. They show us that catastrophe renders nature historical, revealing the impact of human activity on non-human processes. Stepping out of historical time risks dissolving the effects of human action in the stream of geological duration, in which our world-historical mistake, our catastrophic contretemps, turns out, after all, to have been a well-timed error, a fortunate fall.
Is the (re)turn to non-human time, then, a cover-up of our complicity in planetary violence, both slow and rapid? Or do we turn against time not to escape history but to mark rupture? Not to elude blame, but to retrace fault lines between our disconnected present and our interconnected past, between humanity and its extended family, its long-lost kin? The works and beings in Contretemps counter human time to counteract its effects – to fulfill, in artist Jemila MacEwan’s words, “the utopic desire to reverse the inevitable process of extinction,” to recover lost ancestors and lost memories. To recover lost time by uncovering its loss.
A project space of the NYU Gallatin WetLab, this exhibition will also be lived with and animated by students through art-writing, performance, and environmental science."

"Time For Reflection
Plenty of time for reflection is what a lot of people were experiencing. Tessa Grundon – @tessa.grundon – spent the lockdown period away from her studio in New York. Thrown back on her childhood home in London, she made highly symbolic images, loaded with memories and associations.
Her pictures of night-time wanderings, incorporated personal memories. Reflections in windows and mirrors enabled her to recall both familiar present and inaccessible past.
Pot-bound plant life
Tessa is an artist who normally uses natural pigments and vegetation. Pot-bound plant-life immediately echoed how she, along with many other people has been feeling confined. She commented later:
‘The thread pieces are made from plants in my mother’s garden using an old spindle from my childhood. I was back in my old bedroom while being in isolation looking after my elderly parents. Collecting, breaking down the plants into threads to spin and work with for a future project.
It was very meditative and soothing to be spinning again and also the idea of creating threads from my mothers garden – her greatest joy . To tie bits of time and place together, mending what is in the process of slipping away.
The sticks with lichen are from a large Robinia in the garden that my grandmother (her mother in law) had bought for her many years ago. She’s not fond of it as it is always shedding something all over the garden! But it seemed poignant to be binding the the twigs together with other elements from the garden.’
- Tessa Grundon"
Plant Cure, The Humanities Gallery
"New York, NY – Curated by Maddy Rosenberg, CENTRAL BOOKING’s Plant Cure/Brooklyn, in collaboration with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, opens at the Humanities Gallery, LIU Brooklyn on September 4, from 6-8pm. Sarah Stengle will bring to life her exhibited steel stringed harp, with medicinal rue plants cast in resin, in her performance 'Rue:d/an Acorn is not a Oak Tree' at 7pm. The exhibition runs until December 13, 2019.
The Plant Cure project began in 2017 with a collaboration of CENTRAL BOOKING and the New York Academy of Medicine in which five Artists in Residence researched their work at NYAM for an exhibition in CENTRAL
BOOKING’s Lower East Side space. Various documentation of their process was also displayed in vitrines in the NYAM library at the end of their research. Fourteen additional artists with work on the theme of medicinal plants were curated into the CENTRAL BOOKING exhibition and were involved with event programming as well. But Plant Cure was meant to be a project that literally grew from place to place to incorporate more artists,institutions, and collections into a connective thread, with each additional collaboration involving new work while evolving the work of past participants. Brooklyn Botanic Garden seemed to be the ideal next location for the project, a childhood place of exploration for Maddy Rosenberg, the curator and project organizer of CENTRAL BOOKING."

Governors Island, NY
“[Working with water as site and material] is about recognizing and experiencing how we are but dependent parts of much larger natural patterns and forces, and living accordingly. This is not new knowledge, but we need to relearn this ancient wisdom and bring it into the contemporary context.” - Jackie Brookner, artist
Works on Water and Underwater New York are pleased to invite you to a celebration of Water Art is the New Land Art, a small, documentary exhibition that shares photos from Works on Water 2017, the first triennial dedicated to art made on, in, and with the water, along with Water Art projects from around the world and new works created by our fifty-four 2018 Artists-in-Residence. This exhibition is organized as part of our 2018 artist residency on Governors Island, where we have created an incubator space for diverse investigations of water in the urban environment.
We’re also thrilled to launch the catalogue documenting the 2017 triennial, which will be available during the celebration, as well as the launch of our beta-version Water Art Map. We hope you’ll join us to celebrate the work of this diverse community of artists and practitioners working in water-based planning, science, policy, and art to define the future of our waterways.

BOECHO GALLERY - Edificio Bella Exhibition, London, UK
Delighted to have a few of my paintings in this exhibition "Edificio Bella" at Boecho Gallery in London.
"Tessa's work is extremely delicate both in the materials she uses and in the output of her work. She uses a mix of found materials including pigments drawn from mud, coloured earths, rust and charcoal. Embedded in the materials is a history of the place and time from which these works are made. It's a wonderfully poetic statement of our time and place and what we are doing to the planet. Her work makes you consider those places, it's unapologetically environmental in it's focus and resonance and all the more powerful for that." Dee Gray, curator and gallery owner.

"We also had an artist in residence in the crew, Tessa Grundon, who was working alongside the research team and her work will help to spread the environmental message to a wider audience. Her ideas also added a valuable dimension to the scientific research.
We were spoilt by some seriously beautiful anchorages and visited some of the stunning little harbours on the South coast of Cornwall, and had time to explore the many untouched backwaters with their history of smuggling and romance, such as Frenchman’s Creek of Daphne Du Maurier fame.
Every time the anchor came up, Tessa Grundon, our artist in residence would take samples of the mud which clung to it. Tessa’s work is influenced by the topography and history of a place and its ever-changing environment, from the shifting tides to the effect of man on community and landscape. The materials she uses in her work are often drawn from the site, such as earth pigments and local beeswax, and likewise her inspiration comes from the secret places and objects she finds on the journey. You can see her beautiful artwork and video of Tolcarne Creek below (turn up the sound, it’s very beautiful!)". Oliver Beardon, founder of SailBritain.

Come pick free fruit and vegetables and learn about how SWALE was created in order to get around local ordinances of growing and picking food in public places.
SWALE - SHARE A PLANT / SHARE A STORY
I was very excited to start a plant exchange initiative whereby neighbours from the local Bronx community surrounding Cement Plant Park could bring plants that they grew for food, particularly food from a home country and plant it on Swale as well as picking whatever they wanted from other plants. We asked that they share their cooking stories and recipes from home wherever that may be. I brought plants that my mother would grow and cook with in her garden back in England - rosemary, marjoram, thyme and tarragon.
