Kalamazoo Institute of Arts: Luminescence: From Sa...

Presented by Kalamazoo Institute of Arts at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

See a gallery transformed into a magical, “underwater” installation of colorful and glowing “fish, jellies, and coral” by Sayaka Ganz. Guided by sensitivity to the environment and human habits of discarding objects, Ganz rescues and repurposes plastic utensils and household items as the material of her sculptural creations. Slotted spoons and colanders gain a second life as luminescent sea creatures that invite us to reexamine our relationship to the natural world, perhaps with special attention to the problem of plastics washing into our oceans. Visitors to Environmental Impact (Spring 2014) will recall Ganz’s trio of suspended, swimming polar bears. This installation will be designed specifically for the Joy Light Gallery of Asian Art by the artist.
