Artist Talk with April Weir Farm AIR, Steffen Pollock. April 22 at 6:00 PM at the Wilton Library.
April brings Steffen Pollock to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program. Drawing from several literary sources, (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Hunger Mountain, and Spell of the Sensuous) Pollock’s work will explore the lack of distinction in ‘subject’ and ‘object’. If the land is a text, he expresses himself as a segment of that text. Our view of ‘land’ is determined by what type of mental interpretive structure we are using to see. ‘Seeing’ is not and has never been the exclusive domain of the human eye. He will use different means to ‘see’ including satellite imaging, field recordings, land surveys, and telemetry.
Weir Farm’s Artist-in-Residence program (AIR) selects twelve artists to live and work at Weir Farm each year. To date, over 200 artists from throughout the U.S., as well as Tunisia, Germany, Australia, India and the Netherlands have participated in the AIR program. Visual artists apply for one month residencies in all media and diverse artistic points of view from traditional to experimental.
