It’s mid-summer and Art Farm again sets its culture phasers on steroidal stun with an event planned to release a parabola of aesthetic plasma to awesome effect. It’s a 3-ring, exhilarating, irresistible: get-your-glands-going day of spatial variety. Kwangwoo Kim from Korea,
in an eruption of trench digging, labors from sunrise to sunset preparing
for his installation/performance/collaboration, The Way of Time. Johnny Walker from Texas, rebuilds his wind sculptures daily in Sisyphean struggle with the weather and Shannon Young from Maryland, wanders lost through cornfields and countryside with a shopping cart; a perfect example of hope enacted that real food might be discovered on a farm. The main event starts at 8:00 PM, but there will be new artists in residence
(Matt Walker, Canada and Joan Waltemath, NYC) to visit and trade celebrity gossip
with before the performance. Or you can take a hedonically visual cavort through the Edenic expanse of exceedingly luxuriant flora in the sculpture pasture, so come early—why not make it an afternoon out. There is no need to speed off after sunset: it’s when the outdoor videos begin, guaranteed to be bigger than life and inspire you to reverence.
A table of gulp and go snacks is ready to keep your nutrient levels replenished at their peak helping you go on and on—on through the night.
Except for the weather, which will cancel everything if nasty, don’t let some other overwhelming sensation of existential emptiness like the economy’s desolation detour you from coming—it’s all free.
