Art and Social Practice
Heather Hart, an interdisciplinary artist from Brooklyn, NY will be featured in the Terrain Gallerywill participate in a number of community events from February 21 to 24 that showcase her talent of combining art with social practice. She is interested in creating site-specific liminal spaces for personal reclamation. Her work questions dominant cultural narratives and offers alternatives to them. New stories are created through Hart’s thoughtful proposed interactions, these experiences are a starting place for rebuilding history – a renewed platform to reshape or strengthen cultural identity. Her work makes use of large immersive sculptures that invite a very physical level of interactivity or can provide a more intimate experience with secluded spaces and participatory drawings. For her, this interactivity is key to the message of transition and change that is embedded within her art.
Hey. You. How’ve you been feeling the last couple of days? Despondent? Emboldened? Terrified? Relieved?
Terrain wants to hear from you. All of you. We’d love for you to create something that reflects these emotions. It can be a poem. A drawing. A song. A letter. Collage. Dance. Sculpture. Anything and everything is welcome. Each person gets a 1’x1’ space. Open to everyone.
