A supporter of the growing Ecology Movement, sculptor and performance artist Maren Hassinger evokes an artificial landscape within the elegantly minimal sculptural environment of Leaning. Bush-like forms made from twisted, welded, and bent wire rope build a complex site for group interaction and personal reflection. Transforming industrial detritus into an abstract and formally rigorous garden, Hassinger creates a contemplative experience that is charged with different meanings—about natural versus artificial, and personal versus communal.
Tonight, Hassinger will be one of the seven artists/activists speaking at our event The Provocateurs: A Master Series presented with @blklivesmatter. The panel begins at 7pm.
Hassinger's work is currently on view in 'We Wanted a Revolution: Radical Women, 1965 - 1985.' 📸 Brian Forrest
