This site specific installation will be created for the City of Reno’s Metro Gallery in collaboration with local school children.
This kickstarter project will be used help cover the cost of the creation, shipping, installation and de-installation of a site-specific installation for the gallery, running November 28th, 2011 to January 13, 2012. I live between Chicago and Milwaukee, so any cost related to shipping and travel as related to the show will be a very real issue.
For my proposed show for the Metro Gallery, I would like to use the space to make a site-responsive paper-based installation. The gallery is curved, and I would like to use the space to loosely create a landscape/horizon.
It is important for me to travel out to the gallery for install because part of the installation will be created in collaboration with local school children from the University of Reno Early Learning Center and the overall artwork will be made specifically for the gallery for the run of the show.
My sense of landscape is derived from my fragmentary experience, but overall sense of place is communal. To expand my understanding and make an installation that borrows specifically from Reno, I will gather images taken by participants recruited through the school on the campus of University of Nevada—Reno (the Early Learning Center and potentially the Elementary School). These photographs will be the source material for the installation, providing unique images the landscape, sunrises and sunsets specific to the Reno area. The re-created landscape, and the re-iteration that occurs through these multiple layers will become a new location through the multiple translations. They will also be making their own artworks that will be integrated into the show.
I am a collage artist, and I work with sewn paper. To reflect the work that will be made for the installation, I will offer art inspired by and from the installation.
All contributors, no matter the donation will be acknowledged in the signage for the exhibition.
