Today we open the Wisdom House installation with artist Kardash Onnig.The image above is where we began and I hope everyone can come during it’s 2 month duration to see where we ended. An ongoing interest that I have had as an artist and gallery owner is moving away from the idea of art as object and conceiving and creating art as experience; Liberating art from the gallery environment to something that is potentially more dynamic. It is not that far removed from a theater or concert experience. This event is an expression of place infused with an ensemble of sensory and tactile elements. It is an experiment. Creating a greater work of art with art fascinates me.
It is a new model in my path and future things like this are being planned. There will be a publication available and we are in the process of assembling a video documenting this event as well. Fingers crossed but sure is fun finding the edge and trying not to fall off .
On May 20th, Transfourming Sorrow , a multi sensory installation by artist Kardash Onnig, will open in the Chapel at Wisdom House, a Retreat Center in Litchfield, Connecticut. I have organized and curated this event joining a very special place with a very special art experience.This will be the largest undertaking I have attempted and we are hoping to maximize this opportunity and message by planning a documentary , publication as well as other support events. Because of these plans we have undertaken a GoFundMe campaign that we hope you will get behind and support to enable the projects we would like to complete surrounding this event. This will be a unique experience where art will be seen in its purest form transforming a non- traditional space into a memorable experience. Please spread the word and post the link to the gofundme campaign on your facebook pages or wherever you are connected to help bring a wider visibility and awareness to what will be occurring and this event.
I have also included a link to the Wisdom House page for more information on Transfourming Sorrow.We will update as we near the opening.
