STREAM Chapter 5: Give & Take August, 2019


We are Two Chairs, a curatorial enterprise made up of artists, curators and thinkers. This year Two Chairs is expanding its program during August by combining its annual group exhibition in and around a stream in South Windham, Vermont entitled Stream Chapter 5: Give &Take with an artist residency in collaboration with Meadows Bee Farm that will take place concurrently. We propose to create an event that reaches out to an even larger audience–local, national and international. For several years, we have curated group exhibitions that have primarily investigated the effects of human activity on the natural environment. This year our project will include a range of artists who work in a more participatory manner by exploring ideas of benevolence, sharing and care both locally and globally. 

Chinese artist Xin Hao Cheng will be our artist-in-residence and his project will be nested within the exhibition Stream Chapter 5: Give & Take. He contributed artwork to Stream: Chapter 4 in 2017 that was created specifically for the exhibition but he was unable to come to Vermont.

This year we will bring Xin Hao Cheng to South Windham to initiate a new project originating from his photographic research during the residency exploring the flora, fauna, geological formations and communities surrounding the stream. During his residency he will host a series of cyanotype workshops for the community as part of Stream, Chapter 5. His research will culminate in a book project highlighting his unique approach to artmaking that combines photography, chemistry and sociology in relation to a specific site. To make this project happen we need to raise funds for Xin Hao Cheng’s airfare from China and his travel costs while in the US. Leigh Merinoff, founder of Agroliving, has very generously offered to host Xin Hao Cheng during his stay at her Meadows Bee Farm in Windham and his workshops will take place in Meadows Bee Craft Barn.

Stream Chapter 5: Give & Take will also include Måns Wrange who will present his unlimited edition Good Deed Certificate for barter or purchase; Tomoe Tsutsumi will be on site to present her project I want to fix your hole where visitors can present Tomoe with a garment in need of repair that she will then mend with red thread; Wallis Couverte’s work Rainbow Cross invites the audience and participants to wear custom-designed arm bands replicating the design of the red cross but in a myriad of different color combinations (never repeated) thereby replacing the notion of aid as a medical or wartime emergency measure with a more urgent everyday habit. Zhijun Song will contribute an interactive sound installation that uses the sound of water in the stream to amplify our shared interest in this vital resource and the responsibility we must take in protecting it. Gwen Smith will present a selection of  photographs of tree bark and of peeling paint taken in NYC and attach them to trees nearby the stream; this uncanny juxtaposition shifts the surfaces from urbanity to nature. We are also thrilled that Juneau Projects will join once again with a project entitled 'I Am The Warrior' a custom designed temporary exhibition framework where anyone can  bring anything they have made themselves (art, craft and design) and add it at any point during the show. These are just a few of the artists who will participate.

All of the participating artists, whether abroad or in the US, need some basic financial assistance with travel, shipping or materials. The local 2 Chairs team in South Windham and the community provide lodging, food, local transportation, labor and locally sourced materials (and of course friendship and encouragement).

We hope that you will consider helping us this year and we hope to see you at Stream: Chapter 5 in South Windham Vermont opening on August 10th! 

Your support is really appreciated. Please enjoy the rewards on offer for backing our project and check out the Support section on this page for more detailed individual descriptions. We can't thank you enough for your support!

Risiken und Herausforderungen

This is the first time we have combined an artist residency with an exhibition so it is a challenge for our small team. As usual one of the risks is contending with weather as the exhibition takes place outdoors.
However during Stream Chapter 4 we had the largest attendance on the rainiest day.
