Clearing Project Completed at the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer Minnesota
We aimed to erase views of the existing artwork through a series of voids delimited by black figures: in this case, pairs of mirrors mounted to 28’-tall repurposed City of Minneapolis lampposts. Mowed paths emphasize these corridors through the prairie landscape in a clear departure from the existing network of rectilinear paths. As you move through the space, the surrounding artworks appear and disappear from view putting the sculptures, the horizon, and the surrounding space in continual juxtaposition.
Much of our work relies on embodied experience and is difficult to photograph. Please venture out to Shafer, MN to experience this work in person and enjoy one of Minnesota’s cherished spaces for experimental artwork.
We are having an opening on Sunday, October 29, from 4pm - 7pm at Franconia Sculpture Park
