The artists of Sixfold bring their unique sensibility and creative process to the idea of Net and net making, to complete a large sculptural installation, and other collaborative works. The knot tying, woven nature and traditions surrounding net making have a quality and form that speaks of both community connections and individual strength. Each of the Artists in Sixfold imagines nets functionally and metaphorically in creating our installation for Autumn 2011, and some of the ideas we imbue our nets with are of capture, release, letting go the past, safety, dance and play. Installations of "LAIR" were shown at Abernathy Arts Center (Atlanta, GA) from Nov. 18 - Dec. 31, 2011 and at The Hambidge Great ARTdoors Festival (Rabun Gap, GA) on October 15, 2011.
RECURRENCE II, Art on the Beltline, Atlanta GA
Recurrence by Sixfold, was a collaborative sculpture of repurposed fabrics and steel, that was installed in two separate outdoor exhibitions. The first installation of Recurrence 1, was exhibited in the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition’s annual outdoor sculpture show in Brooklyn, NY, summer 2009. The second installation, Recurrence 2, combined the sculpture with a site-specific garden, for exhibit in “Art on the BeltLine”, Atlanta, GA, summer 2010. This second installation included an artists talk, and separately a youth “Art Walk”. For this, we guided the kids of “Create your Dreams” on a walk to see and discuss the variety of artwork installed along the Beltline, and then facilitated a project to create a temporary “environmental” artwork out of materials found along the walk.
THE MEME PROJECT
In this ongoing project (from 2009), Susan and UK artist Fay Hutchcroft exchange digital imagery, with the only rule being that the art generated must also occupy a physical place at some point in the process. One form of the project was created and exhibited in 2014 for Zalop: Illusory Correspondence Art, at Eyedrum Atlanta GA. Shown here are some hightlights of the large collection of works.
