About Everything Anywhere
Everything Anywhere is a sculptural installation that invites engagement, performance, and personal narrative. Cannupa Hanska Luger, a New Mexico-based artist creates a semi-figurative ceramic head (approx 6’ tall) that is resting in the spector ripps project space. The ceramic mass of the head consists of smaller bead-like forms strung together on steel supports. The ‘bead’ objects range gallery with woven fiber ‘hair’ reverberating outwards from the figure and climbing the gallery walls, creating a shelter in which the public is summoned to enter. Low-range cooing and sounds of comfort exit the sculpture serving as a beacon of safety. An alternate viewing area in the gallery doubles as a stage with a microphone that hosts a variety of literary events and performances. Viewers who engage with the microphone hear their words resound from the sculpture.
