Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 2 June 2012

Camp Out: Finding Home in an Unstable World

June 2 – September 16, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2, 2012, Laumeier Indoor and Outdoor Galleries, 5-7pm Public Opening (Artist's Talk - 6:30pm)

Camp Out: Finding Home in an Unstable Worldlooksat different ways in which the dream of home has imploded over the past three
decades, and how new forms of home might be fashioned in their stead.The exhibition explores our current struggles and hopes to provide alternative ways of viewing nature and landscape through the built environment using a variety of approaches including: apot luck party for neighbors complete with eggs from a chicken coop; a vegetable allotment, a tear drop tent clamped to a tree; a livable cocoon made of plastic bags and duct tape; re-purposed industrial waste receptacles; quasi-functional wearable housing; ruin porn and a massive Plexiglas fire.

This exhibition and the art it includescreate awareness about culture, community and the many variations of a home. More  mportantly, the exhibition investigates how the public views home and how we live on and use Laumeier Sculpture Park's largest asset: 105 acres of Missouri Woodland.
