Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 5 November 2016

Laumeier Sculpture Park opens an indoor multimedia exhibition by Mohau Modisakeng in the Whitaker Foundation Gallery at the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center and an outdoor exhibition by sculptors Alison Ouellette-Kirby and Noah Kirby at the Amphitheater in the Way Field for the 2016 Kranzberg Exhibition Series.

 Mohau Modisakeng creates lush, elegant photographs and videos that reimagine the black body in contemporary society. Modisakeng is often the actor in his simple performances that express issues of rebirth against the historical trauma of colonization and apartheid.

The sculptural installation features a massive sheet-metal megaphone with an interactive audio element. The speaker is inspired by previous work in their Tone Deaf series that explores the noise and notions of communication, incorporating a mechanism that translates and projects the visitor’s voice into a harmonic birdsong as a response to the flora and fauna in the Park.

Both exhibitions run through January 29, 2017.

Opening reception is Saturday, November 5, from 11:00–1:00 p.m. at Laumeier Sculpture Park, 12580 Rott Road, Saint Louis, Missouri.
