Last weekend was, theoretically, the closing of Human/Nature at the Headlands Center for the Arts. However, by popular demand and to coincide with the Creative Ecologies event taking place there over the next few weeks, the show has been extended. So you still have a chance to see this interesting exhibition.
Perhaps at the public round table for Creative Ecologies from 1pm on Sunday March 6th, from 1pm.
I got a second chance to wander and contemplate Human/Nature last week when I attended the orientation for the Headland’s Artist in Residence (AIR) program. I have a residency in the Project Space where Human/Nature is showing, in July and August this year. An incredibly exciting (and slightly daunting) prospect. The Project Spaces (there are two) are extraordinarily beautiful spaces with intriguing natural light and panoramic views of the valley heading down to Rodeo Cove. All of the work that is in Human/Nature resonates with the physical environment and does so directly by connecting with the views through the huge windows in the Project Spaces. I’m really enjoying this early ideation stage of getting to know the space and thinking about what might work within the scale of the Project Space, within the context of the larger environment of the Headlands and within my own conceptual framework. Its such a strange (and yet familiar) dance.
Here’s a, hopefully mouthwatering, sampling from Human/Nature. This is just a taste! See it ‘in the flesh’ soon!
