Edited by Georgia Erger, with contributions by Vic Brooks and Leslie Dick 

This catalogue is published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Clarissa Tossin: to take root among the stars. Clarissa Tossin works across artistic mediums including film, sculpture, and drawing to explore the intersections of climate change and global capitalism’s frontier mythologies.  This first monograph of the artist’s work presents an overview of her career through full-color reproductions that span from 2008 to 2023, including images of several new artworks commissioned by the Frye. Through their seamless melding of synthetic and organic materials, the featured works embody the tension between capitalist-driven ecological destruction and reciprocal caretaking approaches of Indigenous communities. Essays by curator Vic Brooks, writer Leslie Dick, and exhibition curator Georgia Erger offer intimate assessments of the artist’s practice at a timely moment.
