Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
S.E. Nash, a visual artist and food fermentation experimentalist, recently moved to Kansas City from New York City in 2016. 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.
