Gallery: STILL WATERS: Interactive Eco-Art Installation

 

Environmental artist Jane Ingram Allen will be presenting a series of installations at the Tenri Gallery in the Tenri Cultural Institute in New York City, under the title Still Water. Open through May 31st, each of these works is site-specific, made with handmade paper and pulp containing seeds for wildflowers. Along with a pledge to conserve water, guests to the Still Water exhibition are invited to take with them a pod from the wall to plant. Allen will be replacing and replenishing them on the gallery walls as they are taken, constantly changing the configuration of the installation transcending typical stationary and purely aesthetic artworks. After the exhibition the remaining drops will be absorbed into the soil to continue the cycle of life.
