Art installation brings ‘Wonderwall’ interactive experience for visitors
Pelham Art Center’s “In the Courtyard” Public Art Program continues with a new monumental sculpture by New York City-based artist Andrea Stanislav, AU Class of 1997. “Wonderwall (Fluorescent Fuchsia Labyrinth)” will be on display in the outdoor space Saturday, June 14 through Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014. There will be an opening reception Friday, July 11 from 6:30-8 p.m.
This experiential and interactive sonic installation responds to the architecture of the Pelham Art Center’s courtyard, exterior light, and visitors to the space. The sculpture is made from cast concrete reinforced with steel rebar, steel tube, and recycled transparent fluorescent vinyl. Participants will experience a minimalist transparent construction that references a labyrinth form and is activated by glowing florescent fuchsia color and light. The cement and florescent vinyl work off each other towards a material duality. Motion sensors are hidden in the trees and when triggered by visitors play an original atmospheric remixed audio work from hidden audio speakers, which deconstructs the Oasis song “Wonderwall.” The installation aims to strike a balance and synergy between a physical form, light, color, and sound for the visitor/participant.
She is represented by The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, London, UK; Packer Schopf Gallery, Chicago, IL; and Jonathan Shorr New York, NY. She is an associate professor of Visual Arts at the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis, where she is the head of the sculpture area.
