PARIS-SCOPE: SUSAN GRAHAM
SPIRAL LANDSCAPE
MARCH–MAY 2014

Mixed Greens and Projective City are pleased to present an ambitious, site-specific installation by Susan Graham in which an entire wall of the gallery, from floor to ceiling, will be consumed by a giant mandala-like spiral made of porcelain sculptures and sugar objects affixed directly to the wall. There is a simultaneous sense of wonder and danger in the installation, palpable through the viewer’s proximity to such unprotected fragility.

For over a decade, Graham has used strategies of pattern and decoration to poetically depict the eternal struggle between nature and technology. In this installation, Graham will push scale and her materials to limits dictated by time and fragility. Her ability to transform delicate, evocative materials into powerful objects is showcased as she uses porcelain and sugar to sculpt wall-based electrical towers, satellite dishes, flora, and trees with a depth that is both precarious and inviting. Humorous yet foreboding, each vignette will build upon the next to create an overall vortex that leaves an indelible impression.

Susan Graham commissioned for public space at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Susan Graham created a unique work for a prominent public space within the new clinical building of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD.

THE NEW JOHNS HOPKINS HOSPITAL BUILDING OPENS MAY 2012 

FEATURING THE CHARLOTTE R. BLOOMBERG CHILDREN'S CENTER AND THE SHEIKH ZAYED TOWER

The new Johns Hopkins Hospital building will offer an environment like few others in the world. Over 70 artists created more than 500 original works of art for the facility. Artists from across the country worked with a curator, in collaboration with a team of architects, to incorporate art and architecture into the new building to enhance the healing process. The art and architecture collaboration was made possible by Michael Bloomberg, long a strong supporter of the arts in institutions and public spaces.

Derek Pardue

 

Violence pervades humanity as experience, public
 policy, narrative, and mediated commodity. The
goal of Ruminations on Violence is to discuss and
analyze various contours of violence as it is made
manifest around the world. This foundational
collection of essays, stories, and poems represent a
wide variety of disciplines and perspectives. The
unifying theme is that violence is not a thing, but rather a dynamic
force occurring among separate, conscious minds that is enhanced by
the careful scrutiny of social science.

This multifaceted anthology is both applied and theoretical in its
approach, containing cross-cultural case studies and personal
testimonies as well as impressionistic essays and theoretical
statements on violence as a powerful discourse. The layout is thematic,
moving from conventional anthropological and sociological issues of
state-sponsored, ethnic, and domestic violence to media studies and
popular-culture fields concerning the aesthetics and narration of
violence. This uniquely eclectic viewpoint offers the reader
interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives that will help
them to understand the difficult issues surrounding the complex phenomenon that is violence.
