Artist talk & reception celebrating “Commodity“, art installation of life-size animals created by the local artist Gin Stone.
An allegorical art installation employing life-size animals created by the artist in a ‘diorama’ that explores the environmental consequences of patriarchal-driven capitalism through human evolution. The unfolding artwork advances its timeline with each consecutive install location it occupies, the results of which are an evolving narrative. In three acts, the installation creates an apt metaphor for the exploitation of living beings, the environment, and ultimately, the planet. The Hawthorne Barn is the setting for the initial installation or ‘act’.
