"Tracy Marie Taylor: 9-11-57"

  • Art

Time Out says

Colorado-bred, Chicago-based artist Taylor continues her fascination with the American West with a site-specific installation in the SUB-MISSION: a topographic sculpture of Mountain Meadows, Utah. Collaged imagery of the sky and layers of mirrored Plexiglas are beautiful but chillingly so. In fact, 9-11-57 functions as a memorial to the Mountain Meadows Massacre, when Mormon militiamen murdered 120 emigrants on September 11, 1857. Projected light bouncing from mirrors onto walls, creating a chaotic, fractured effect. Meanwhile, accompanying audio presents first-person accounts of the massacre, one of the worst in U.S. history.
