Art Trash: A Mini Residency

Grace Clark

Public Open Studio Hours:

I will be working on a series that will utilize trash taken from museum settings (primarily MASS MoCA) as material to recreate art installation scenes from my time working as an art fabricator/installer. Many of these scenes are fleeting moments throughout the installation and maintenance team’s everyday work, where tools and supplies lay in space in a way that makes me immediately think of it as minimalist, abstract sculpture. The arrangements aren’t meant to be art, but the people behind them are true craftsmen, many with their own creative practices as well. I wonder if by recreating these scenes and calling them art, we may be able to more adequately elevate the work of those that are so necessary for exhibitions to exist, but so often go unseen.

More About Grace

Grace Clark is a visual and social practice artist whose work is centered in a deeply diaristic narrative of metabolizing love, loss, and labor. She reflects upon these themes within her experiences as a museum worker, educator, mediator, patient, and daughter to contemplate ways of living, feeling, and wishful thinking. Sculptural, text, and photographic media, often including found and natural objects, play fundamental roles in her practice as she navigates and interprets a variety of landscapes––attempting to organize a spiritual space within the natural, question the cultural, and map her own interior.
