Catherine Wagner

San Jose Museum of Art

This exhibition presents Wagner's monumental installation Pomegranate Wall (2000) in SJMA's permanent collection, the glowing 8-by-40-foot arc of photographs taken with an MRI machine and made during an artist residency fellowship at the Museum. Shown with black-and-white photographs of plant and animal matter from Wagner's visual investigation of science laboratories, the immersive installation explores life from the inside out.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Catherine Wagner :

The central installation in this exhibition is Catherine Wagner’s “Pomegranate Wall,” 2000. It will seem prescient to audiences new to her work, but it is the product of a two-year fellowship Wagner received from SJMA in 1997. The work employs scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and MRI technologies to draw attention to how advances in science allow us to see life at the microscopic level.
