Trashnami! Hits White Box

Press release babble:

CIRCA 2012: Ruminations on a Changing World (July 17-22)
Kim Holleman
Opening Reception: Thursday July 17th, 6-11pm

Combining the organic and manipulated, natural and disastrous to create an actual Natural Disaster, TRASHNAMI! is a colorful 20-foot cresting wave of plastic shopping bags that dwarfs viewers and threatens to engulf the exhibition space.

…On the street, Holleman will roll out her award-winning piece, Trailer Park, a complete 10 x 14 foot trailer that has been converted into a mobile public park, for the evening.

Her installation this past spring at Black & White (W’burg) was more sparse though I remember at the time wishing it would be lush and filled in. Her latest work sounds more like what I was expecting in the first place.

    Actually the Future Mountain piece that Hrag is referring to was meant to be sparse at first since it was meant to be a “perpetual” work in progress-unfortunately like our land-fills. It was also a community based project where visitors came in to add their own bags ,which they did do. Over the almost two months of the show, that mountain did fill in, to an almost overwhelming degree. Had someone not gone back over time, then of course they would not have seen that progression, but it was meant to be a time marker. Sparse at first, does not mean, sparse at the end.
