In The Future of the Past, Carsley brings more than two decades of experience with realising intricate room based installations to the challenge of contaminating Galerie pompom with an ensemble of domestically scaled wall works. Central to this is a large exploded still life in which concerns around biological diversity are linked to the collapse of cultural plurality and the emergence of pervasive monocultures. In this new series of shaped Pietre Dure sublimation prints stone textures the artist has harvested from the sites of cultural and economic power around the world are used to image butterflies that have become extinct during the epoch of the global art museum.
