COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT with MAPPINED TERRACES,
Ceramic and Mixed Media Sculpture Installation
UNIT 115 gallery, Kingston Arts Council 2018.
Sculpted stoneware sheep-like figures. Rough-cut pine lumber. Found metal school table base. Cast cement "building blocks" and "green spaces".
In this sculpture installation, I invite visitors to install Mappined Terraces according to a rubric that I provide them as part of an opening night event September 201). The rubric invited participants to arrange the sculptural components into an expression suggestive of confinement, or feeling trapped. Their actions become a performance, a negotiation, a relationship, a public collective curation and a final sculptural installation.
