The large glass windows at Artpace’s 445 North Main facility features an unusual new exhibit, with legs ascending from sand piles in the floor, swirling towards the ceiling.
Artist Julia Barbosa Landois describes it:
"There are all these different legs," she says. " They start as these neutral, earthy colors, and they become very vibrant, purples, light blue, turquoise, pink. And then at the top they become reflective, embossed, colored foil."
Landois’ BURIED, NOT DEAD exhibition is located in the Windowworks —the exhibit facing Main Street. Passersby don’t just get to see the work—they get to hear accompanying performance art audio from speakers.
"It is about connecting to something larger than yourself, the connection of all of us," she said. "It’s on view 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The mood of the pieces and the view changes a lot from day to night."
The exhibit can be seen from the street anytime, and from inside Artpace Wednesday though Sunday from noon to five. It’s free and open to the public until Dec. 29.
