OVCE collaboration with Rebecca Norton’s “The Green Grass, A Looking Glass, Whereon Their Traits are Found”.
Please join us this year at Forecastle for a special collaboration emphasizing the vision of OVCE! This year, Louisville-born, Los Angeles-based artist Rebecca Norton presents “The Green Grass, A Looking Glass, Whereon Their Traits are Found”. In order to demonstrate the solidarity of grassroots communities with regards to the environment, artists from Los Angeles and Louisville have teamed up with members of the non-profit organization Ohio Valley Creative Energy to produce an installation that considers two symptoms of strip mining: contaminated water and citizen discontent. The collaborative project, functioning within OVCE’s vision for sustainable production, can only be realized through a joined community effort. The multi-media production participates directly with materials that suggest both visually and conceptually our relation to landscape in continual metamorphosis. The work will be exhibited at the Forecastle Festival on the Belvedere Plaza in Louisville, KY, July 10-12, 2009. Stop by our table and say hello!
