Artist Residency on Governors Island
Since our residency takes place in a two story house, these two sides of Persephone will be represented on each floor (the surface v. the underworld)
2.Installation Artist(s) for the stairwell
- paintings, photography, sculpture, video art, etc that address the theme of female sexuality and desire.
- paintings, photography, sculpture, video art, etc from female artists that respond to the following prompt: "How I respond to how my sexuality is represented."
- connection to mythology is a plus.
- Room #1: Seeking an installation artist to transform the space into a confessional. Art can be metaphorical or realistic. Could use projections, sounds etc. Artist can utilize natural light or block off widows. Secrets will be revealed in this room. It is part of the underworld in a profoundly personal way.
- Room #2 - seeking an installation artist to transform this larger space into a club. This space is two rooms that bleed into each other. Possibly, one half will seem like a swinger party, the other like a kink party dungeon. Particularly interested in a projection artist, but open to other options. Also interested in blocking out natural light and creating a lighting experience. Soundscape options also welcome.
