Philadelphia Sculptors organized “Catagenesis,” a group exhibition curated by Leslie Kaufman (President of Philadelphia Sculptors) and independent Cheryl Harper of site-specific installations at Globe Dye Works, a sprawling former textile dyeing facility in the Frankford neighborhood of north Philadelphia. Six invited artists, including Nivi Alroy, were joined by eleven artists chosen via an open-call process to create an exhibition of multimedia works that responded to the building’s manufacturing history and current state of transition. Alroy presented Erupting Pangaea (named after the name given to the super-continent preceding the division of the land into continent), it responded to its location in the space that housed the boilers used for heating the fabrics. The installation imitates a process of life generation and constant movement. The giant barrels operate as the source of the thread and the microscope as a life-creating sewing machine.
