2019 Artist Support Grant recipient Corson Androski redraws the boundaries of what constitutes a conventional studio space by activating an expanded set of working processes in outdoor clearings, groves, gullies, and ravines. On Saturday, June 22nd Corson will a lead small group of participants through sections of Elmwood Park that reveal hidden connections between intervention, conservation, identification, and documentation. Participants are encouraged to bring their cameras, questions, and a healthy curiosity about ways to cultivate more meaningful relationships to our immediate ecosystems through creative practice.
This group will be limited to 5-7 participants and meet in the parking lot of Elmwood Park Swimming Pool, where the walk will begin.
Free and open to the public, however, RSVP is required as there is limited space. RSVP at this link.
Corson Androski is a researcher, conservationist, software developer, and photographer/filmmaker from Hutchinson, Kansas. Their work uses the concept of care (as labor, affect, and ethic, given/received by humans and other-than-humans, individuals, and systems) to consider emergent communities of illness alongside informal conservation of the small, overlooked ecosystems of weeds and fungi that spring up in the seams of our patchwork flyover states.
