Meier Family Galleria

Jennifer Steinkamp employs video and new media to create immersive and often interactive works of art. In Still-Life 1, she draws upon the story of Dutch and Flemish still life painting, also known as stilleven or nature morte to create a work that cleverly extends the terms of the genre⁠—as Steinkamp's piece is anything but still.

Like other works in her oeuvre, this piece presents familiar natural elements in a moving format that entrances and mesmerizes. In this way, Steinkamp invites viewers to experience a new, twenty-first-century version of the aesthetic sublime.

We gratefully acknowledge the support from Mr. Jeffrey N. Dauber and Mr. Marc A. Levin.
