Jessica Sanders, Ground, Flow.14 Art and Music at Randall’s Island
June 2014 to November 2014
Randall's Island Park, Manhattan
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum of the Arts and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW annual summer art exhibitions along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Each year, FLOW features site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.
To install Ground, Sanders created ten sculpted earth chairs, in a variety of forms, within sight of one another along the coastline of Randall’s Island Park. The chairs are bound by Kentucky Bluegrass, chosen for its suitability to the Island’s ground and climate, as well as for its balance of softness and durability. The installation offers an unmitigated phenomenological experience, the opportunity to interact with a living material in a simultaneously nostalgic and atypical way. FLOW.14 also includes Dean Monogenis’ City Pillars, Robert Raphael’s Untitled Folly, andKant Smith’s Ghost House.
