Hysterectomies

new projects,public art projects — chris on August 10, 2010 at 7:51 pm

I am currently working on a project  to comment on the phenomenon in my neighborhood of placing large household garbage out on the side walks and in empty lots year round. I am cutting uterus silhouettes from materials in the trash piles, photographing the resulting holes. The removed uterus shapes will be used to create a cast sculpture to be returned to the neighborhood. The trash piles, I believe, act like hysterectomies in that they  remove potential growth in the neighborhood. The uterus is a potent symbol for life, growth, and history.

The following images are details from two of the many piles worked on.
