Amy Zucker— “Where In HealthCare?”
“Where In HealthCare” is a responsive project to the tenuous state of healthcare and its impact on older adults. As a society, we can appreciate the wisdom and enjoy the company of our older adults, but how can we provide any care without means? After many years of nursing experiences working with older adults Amy Zucker has too often seen care that cannot be followed up on, or medicine that cannot be filled due to lack of resources and assistance. The construction of
these figures approach this issue in a literal form. An additional invitation to understanding
is offered to the viewer by playing Senior Roulette. Experience in the moment, what it is like to do without.

Anneliese Vobis— “Cal-ci-fied” & "Zerbrechlichkeit (fraigility)"

“Cal-ci-fied” is an ongoing investigation, a mixture of studio/lab and Natural Science Museum. The exhibit consists of several related environmental theme parts. Especially the impact of rising acid levels in the Oceans is explored. It starts with the presentation of Anneliese Vobis’ studio- lab space where research and experimentation melts together.

“Zerbrechlichkeit (fragility)” is an illuminated floating paper installation that confronts us with an apocalyptic situation - the de-calcification of the shell animals in the future. The artworks are created as places for discussions and the search for future environmental solutions.

Nicole Jacquard— “Presently Absent”
“Presently Absent” is a body of work exploring Nicole Jacquard’s American Indian heritage and investigating a particular area where her family is from and still lives to this day. She is interested in their way of living, how objects of necessity were made, objects that were once made from local resources, and made for specific purposes. Universal themes that continue to reoccur throughout her work are the idea of the souvenir, ornamentation, memory, longing, and nostalgia associated with the collection of personal objects. Overall it is the artist’s goal to express a unique narrative
and sense of longing for either what could be the past, present or even a possible future.
