Rise, Root, Discuss: Storm King Presents Interactive Community Events

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. — There's lots of excitement around "Outlooks: Heather Hart," on view at Storm King through Nov. 26.

The interactive sculptural environment takes the form of a domestic rooftop and is activated by performances, discussions, and other events. Hart’s work spans social and participatory sculpture, drawing, and printmaking, and deals with issues of perception, liminality, history, and spirituality.

Titled "The Oracle of Lacuna," the sculpture takes the form of the rooftop of a house that has seemingly fallen to the ground. The sculpture also contains an interior sanctuary, accessible via a dormer window and a truncated window.

Visitors are permitted to both walk upon the rooftop and explore the interior sanctuary.

The creation of the sanctuary is based in part on Hart’s research into the history of Storm King’s surrounding area and narratives from the Hudson Valley – particularly narratives regarding migration and immigration to the region.

Public performances and programs have taken place on and around the rooftop’s exterior, including music and dance performances, workshops, and spoken word and poetry events.

Upcoming events include a public program on Sunday, Oct. 8 with Rise & Root Farm, led by Community Activist Karen Washington.

An iteration of the 10-year-old series Black Lunch Table (BLT), an ongoing collaboration between Heather Hart and Jina Valentine, an artist and Assistant Professor of Art at UNC Chapel Hill, will take place at the sculpture on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Sunday, the 8th.

BLT brings together local artists of the African Diaspora from the region and records conversations as part of a growing oral history archive.
