He Him/They Them
Shan Turner-Carroll's practice interrogates both human and non-human nature, alternative forms of social exchange and interactions between art, artist and viewer: sending and receiving signals. Shan Turner-Carroll's work can sing to snakes, serenade and signal with aliens, and barter with islands, rivers, and oceans.
Looking towards the multiplicity of connections between body and landscape, site-specificity is key to Shan Turner-Carroll's practice, not only in making, but rather in how an embodied methodology of making emerges upon each site and location. Shan Turner-Carroll sees art-making as ritualistic and transformative, using play, humor and experimentation as key elements within his current practice.
