I am so proud of the work we’ve made based on that expedition almost two years ago. I’m also totally aware that many of you have been more than patient in waiting for your books and CD/DVD’s. In this update I will let you know all the great and recent news as well as an update on the publications.
This winter and spring I’ve been quite busy exhibiting past works, working hard on performances and new work based on the 2012 trip, and also exhibiting work that looks towards future expeditions based on the fantastic experiences and things I’ve learned thus far.
It was with great pride the glass sculpture ‘ice gouge,’ was suspended more than 20 feet high during Art Basel in Miami, one of the largest art fairs in the world. The show, Of Landscape, curated by Andrea Wolf of Reverse Gallery and hosted by Parker Projects was also covered by Creators Project.
‘Of Landscape’ also exhibited in Brooklyn and for this exhibition a piece was created in collaboration with Genevieve Hoffman that had of maps outlining expedition routes and sounds from the field played from a lablike shelf that held ‘artifacts’ from a speculative expedition. A lot of these elements are inspired by the past expedition and look to a future one that will seek participation from Greenlandic communities and communities here at home in the US. As all of this happens it continues to influence the book and cd/dvd I’m working on to get published and out the door to you.
Also in recent news I have been speaking about the trip and giving performances with glass. One performance was given at Reverse gallery as part of the landscape exhibition. And just recently, I performed through the curation of Chris Romero of Bitform Gallery, in an event organized by Hyphen Hub during the Frieze Art Fair. We had a question and answer portion after the performance as well where I was able to speak about the trip which in influenced my work immensely.
Timeline for the Book + CD/DVD
The book and cd are coming in final stages for the release! As mentioned before, in addition to the unexpected amount of work I encountered for more recent exhibitions and performances, publishing with the right concept and in the right way took far longer than I projected. I’ve included here a little teaser of the cover and a few inside pages. And can absolutely assure you this publications are first priority to be released as soon as possible!
More news coming this month! And happy we are seeing so much results from this expedition as well as plans for the next are based on your support.
For now, more documentation from the Sila installation your support made possible.
All the best! + More very very soon!
