Rose Clancy is a sculptor, site-specific installation artist, and gardener currently working with the reclamation of neglected and unused urban spaces. Her work illustrates the ease with which a neglected, unproductive space can be nurtured back to a productive state.
Clancy's GardenLab@510, a Mattress Factory exhibition in a lot adjacent to the museum, is a working garden that incorporates art into the living elements of the space. This year GardenLab@510 will feature peas, radishes and broom corn, as well as structural sculptures crafted from bamboo and trees.
Sarah Oppenheimer opens apertures in existing architecture, modifying the recognizable modular units (such as rooms) that make up our standardized built world. Interested in the way that people navigate their environments through both familiar bodily experience and with the aid of navigational tools, like maps, Oppenheimer’s works alter the visitor’s experience and perception in the gallery space.
