This weekend I really wanted to be at the Spinning Plate Gallery in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, but it was a little too far for me to travel. This weekend was the opening of the fantastic international polymer clay (and mixed media) collaboration Into the forest where artists from all over the world have contributed with creations of all sorts of organic life and plants that could occur in a fantastic forest.
I have only seen it through pictures and videos on the internet, but I can tell IT’S AMAZING!
“Into the Forest” is a mixed media international collaborative installation organized by artists Julie Eakes, Emily Squires Levine and Laura Tabakman. I know that they put some really hard work in this, but I still think that they are magicians – because of them it all turned out to be magic! You can read and see more in the Facebook post from Kathy McCurry below.
If you are in – or in the nearby of – Pittsburgh before December 3, 2017, I highly recommend that you visit this installation.
And yes – of course I have made a contribution, too. You can read more about it here: http://www.mosebackeord.se/konst/my-contribution-to-into-the-forest/
