AMANDA NEDHAM’s Half of Less Than Ten

Amanda Nedham’s new body of work Half of Less Than Ten begins at the end. Inspired by Napoleon’s love letters to his wife Josephine, this show imagines monuments which explore the impassioned and often dubious ambition driving the conquest of the body. Only in death, in trying to put a body back together, can we arrive at these irreducible artifacts which aim to hold onto and unravel these narratives. Borrowing from the histories of colonialism, hagiography, anthropology, and phrenology new types of reliquaries are constructed. These stand as monumental love letters that seek to construct a pathology of desire. See Amanda’s show at Le Gallery in Toronto April 5th-29th.

Amanda Nedham’s Tension Of History

Primarily concerned with the various taxonomic functions of history, Amanda Nedham’s works on paper exhibit a technical proficiency and enamoured exploration of natural history’s complex and overlapping structures. Through a process of abstraction based on the collaging of drawings, largely from television and internet sources, she attempts to focus on those moments that create tension as they challenge the governing voice of history.
