Flyer

structures [ albuquerque ] is a public art project by Robert Stokowy. It consists of eight performative sculptures, located on Albuquerque’s Open Space Land (Sandia Foothills, Manzano Four Hills, Los Poblanos Fields, Rio Grande Nature Center, OSVC, Calabacillas Arroyo, Elena Gallegos and Golden Open Space). Robert combined elements of Sound Art, Land Art, Poetry & Conceptual Art to create text-based interventions from which the artwork emerges. The reader becomes the performer & sole spectator of imaginary sounding, visual or sensory sculptures that one creates from, with & through the installation’s surroundings. The result is an imagined, ever-changing entity that is constructed anew by each individual as well as time, weather and season.  The project is supported by the City of Albuquerque Parks & Recreation Open Space & Berlin Senate Department of Culture and Europe.

Weekly Alibi sat down with Robert Stokowy, who came from Berlin to install Structures (Albuquerque), near one of his pieces opening this weekend at the Rio Grande Nature Center to get a better idea about land art, soundscapes and how Stokowy’s work empowers each of us to make our own art.
