The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present Rachel Eng’s New York City solo show debut. In this installation, Eng has ripped a hole in time, creating a “fissure” in the gallery floor that she has filled with forms referencing Ediacaran fauna modeled out of raw clay. These soft-bodied organisms lived on Earth 635 million years ago. By bringing these ancient lifeforms into the present day, Eng invites viewers to contemplate the vastness of geological time and puts humanity’s relatively short existence into perspective. Ediacaran fauna emerged just before the Cambrian explosion, a massive proliferation and diversification of life on Earth.­ These organisms were unique in that they used and recycled the resources around them, existing in an ecosystem in which organisms were neither predator nor prey. By creating her Ediacaran fauna out of raw clay that she will recycle at the end of the exhibition, Eng considers the ephemerality of all living things and how we could learn from both human and non-human regenerative processes.
