WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND? ONE WORD
WHAT IS ON YOUR MIND? ONE WORD is a relational aesthetic piece which took place on October 18 2020 as part of Atlantic Avenue Gowanus ArtWalk and Imagination Collective. In a one of a kind initiative, artists and local businesses collaborate. This work is created on-site through input from the public, a visual form of journalism, which captures the current mental state of the public at a certain time, at a specific location. This work also explores the transition from the private to public art space, and the freedoms it entails. It was refreshing to see that the outcome was more optimistic than expected!
LABEL: FACT OR FICTION - SEE THE KITCHEN
LABEL: FACT OR FICTION SEE THE KITCHEN is a relational aesthetic installation at the 2019 Spring/Break Art Fair . Artists Patricia Daher and Han Minyun were tasked in labeling everything. They did. The result highlighted the discrepancies between the ultimate truth and its perception. As one approaches fact, fiction seizes, yet fact is fiction.
THE WAY WE PLACE THINGS
The Way We Place Things (2019) is a relational aesthetic installation conceived by New York based Trinidadian Artist Cherisse Rodriguez. In this interactive work, artists and Super Hosts, Cherisse Rodriguez and Patricia Daher welcome both local and international guests of various ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, ages, and levels of education. This work is a sociological experiment, which explores how people relate to their environment, and specifically, its aesthetics, and standards. The Way We Place Things highlights the social aspect of the Airbnb phenomena.
