“STICKS AND STONES WALK : AN INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION BY HOME ELEVEN
Funding Opportunity to Support Local Artists
Miami, FL – Society is a place with inherent frictions, local artist duo Home Eleven pose questions of individuality, duality and prejudice in the social arena. Their interactive exhibit ‘Sticks and Stones Walk’ will be premiering at Grand Rapids Public Museum during ArtPrize, an annual international art festival held in Michigan beginning September 20th. Their challenge now is something they have faced multiple times, funding, funding, funding.
The piece – composed of wood, bricks, plexiglass and foam – creates two halls where viewers pick a hall and decide to stay in their allowed space, or acquire more by pushing the foam divider. Those pushed tubes extend and take away space from the other creating the ‘push and pull’ of bodies in space. The project is being advanced through their GoFundMe Campaign by ArtPrize to purchase materials and shipment. The artists desire different environments to record the variety of responses. After its time in Grand Rapids, the piece will return to Miami and be exhibited at the Deering Estate just in time to coincide with Miami’s Art Week in early December.
Home Eleven formed in 2015 integrating different aspects of architecture, art, design and film to promote change, challenge the status quo and evoke dialogue on issues relating to all of us. Please consider being part of the conversation by aiding Home Eleven’s efforts. Priority timeline for support is August 15th.
