S.E. Nash is a New York City based visual artist and food fermentation experimentalist. Nash’s sculptures and artistic engagements promote thinking with microorganisms. A food fermentation residency with Sandor Katz in 2014 was the catalyst to create sculptures that interact with vessels of fermented foods. The sculptures are constructed as environments and repositories for the vessels, each relating to research of specific fermentation substrates and histories. Part science workshop, part kitchen lab, the fermentation sculpture experiments are observed throughout the display period and are harvested and eaten as a culminating experience of exhibited sculptures.
Nash received an MFA in painting from Yale University in 2005. A forthcoming solo show will take place at Black Ball Projects in February 2016. Nash was a visiting lecturer in Painting and Drawing at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in the fall of 2015. Recent group shows include “Thinking and Touching Time” at Ortega y Gasset Projects, “The Hovering Life” at kijidome gallery in Boston, MA and “Obsolescence” at Curious Matter in Jersey City, NJ.
