Nursing Home
Nursing Home

What do we value? 

"Nursing Home" is a metaphor of the flowering stage of life and the the end of life. The nurturing of the new potential in contrast, the crone, no longer blossoming nurtures the continuation in life of others. 

Three hundred small saplings dug up from a deforested area of woodland, potted, are placed in a grid pattern on the gallery floor. Their renewed nurtured potential gaining a new order.  The Eastern Red Cedar trees are collected from North Carolina and can be grown from Maine to Florida.  The audience is encouraged to walk through to experience the nursery environment.  

Along with the trees, a small greenhouse supports the environment that breathes new life into old discarded orchids and currently flourishing plants. Orchids are forced artificially to produce blooms and look perfect at the point of sale, induced to grow outside of their natural environment, then left for trash at the end of a flowering season.  After their blossoming, these orchids are reclaimed and taken in a suitcase ascarry on luggage to be relocated in their natural environment in the Caribbean. Tied in coconut shells attached to the trees, they now grow, flourish, and multiply.

 

The Berlin Wall
The Berlin Wall

25 Years Forward 

The exhibit brings to the forefront a memorial many of us were witness in our lives. We witnessed its oppression as it was built and freedom in its destruction.

This exhibit examines the idea of oppression presented by building walls, starting with the Berlin Wall to the current Syrian refugee crisis.  The continued oppression is found in the contemporary world.
