Among the Living
Opening Reception and Social Practice Part I: May 12, 5pm-8pm
Artist Talk and Social Practice Part II: June 2, 5pm-8pm
Jen DePaolo’s work is shaped by relationships between people, societies, and ecosystems. Jen explores interconnectedness and life cycles in this new body of sculpture and social practice.
At the opening reception, Jen invites viewers of all ages to engage with her in the creation of "leaf prints". Jen will press clay into the palms of her guests in the shape of a leaf. On one side, the leaf print will capture the texture, size and shape of each hand. Guests can embellish the other side with details that honor their own time and experiences. These will be included in the exhibition and smoke fired live at the closing reception.
Among the Living is supported by City of Albuquerque Urban Enhancement Trust Fund through their Resiliency Residency program, with support by Keshet Center for the Arts.
