Throughout her career, interdisciplinary artist Grimanesa Amorós has used her diverse interests in the fields of social history, scientific research, and critical theory as inspiration for her discipline.
Her most recent exhibition HEDERA, unveiled in Prospect Park on June 5th, "seeks to intensify the relationship between public space and community by harmonizing with its viewers, bringing them closer to an ideal world where individuals can unite in celebration of creativity, nature, diversity and a shared humanity" (BRIC).
Through the use of sculpture, video, and lighting, the artist's work conveys an ephemeral wonder; entrancing viewers from different backgrounds and communities to become agents of empowerment, and illuminating our notions of personal identity and community.
We welcome Grimanesa to discuss her various site specific installations, how she works within different spaces and how people benefit from experiencing various types of site specific work.
