Join us for the closing day of Turf and Terrain, the 2016 Arts in Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial. Artist Eames Armstrong will give their last rendition of her Turf and Terrain work, Fog, which will take place along the exhibition’s path. Meet at 842 New Hampshire Ave. NW (at the yellow house on the corner of New Hampshire Ave. and I St. NW).
Inspired by the history of Foggy Bottom, Eames Armstrong reclaims the written past. Using the neighborhood’s sidewalks as her canvas, the artist will write a collection of texts—her own and those by historic authors—on the brick paths using water and a paintbrush. By writing in water, a simple material yet essential for life, Armstrong inscribes a text that will quickly fade, offering a meditation on the often-futile process of capturing memory, history, and legacy. A durational performance that traces the path of Turf and Terrain, Fog will be performed on three occasions for three hours each time. Each performance will mark the passing of the day, centering on the sunset for the three seasons of the exhibition: Spring, Summer, and Fall.
