sculpture, abstract, Marc Schmitz installation


My recent projects have focused on fnding and interpreting unclaimed or contested public space(s), and on reading the importance of the spatial relationship to both personal and shared- cultural memory. The stories told in those contested spaces reveal alternate possibilities for the human experience – and particularly our experience of urban zones. My work is oriented toward the public realm, is collaborative more than it is ‘interactive,’ relies on ethnographic and art-historical research, and takes advantage of both contemporary and historical forms of artistic media.
