Join us for a panel discussion with our FALLOW GROUNDS and NEU CITY resident artists Michael Koliner, Anika Hirt, and Georgina Brett.


FALLOW GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE

FALLOW GROUNDS is a public art initiative that temporarily activates vacant sites located in East Deutschtown, with site-specific art projects built out of recycled or found materials.

JULY RESIDENT ARTIST
Michael Koliner, Pittsburgh, PA

Re-visit Disorder combines theatre and architecture as a story of extreme personal strife that occurred in Pittsburgh will put on display. By focusing on a single event that otherwise would go unrecognized, it will demonstrate the potential for sharing personal narrative in order to transfer the authorship of space.

NEU CITY

NEU CITY merges urban farming with contemporary art practices in collaboration with the community and local youth groups. This project is in partnership with the Food City community garden, part of Children's Museum of Pittsburgh programming.

JUNE RESIDENT ARTIST:
Anika Hirt, Pittsburgh, PA/Hamburg, DE

Glow vs. Glare is a solar nocturnal root moon sculpture with Rainbow Chard plants growing in an inverted hydroponic system. The exposed colored chard roots will grow into a “woven blanket” around a spherical form containing lights. The work will illuminate the garden at night and teach youth about hydroponics and solar power.

JULY RESIDENT ARTIST
Georgina Brett, Auckland, NZ

A holistic circular herbal garden enclosed within a structure of ceramic works. The ceramic pieces involve participants performing simple gestural acts with two fists-full balls of clay that are squeezed to create an impression of their hand. This work symbolizes an embodiment of human kinship, knowledge and energies that are significant for generating vital communities.

Additionally the site will be a kind of psychic space; a meditative place to evoke inner quiescence or activate consciousness – a transformative space for the mind and body.
