NO MORE STORIES: Intermedia Reflection On Species Extinction
Open Space Gallery/Albuquerque, New Mexico
FEB 27-MARCH 23, 2016
David D’Agostino’s installations embrace the early childhood education ideals of Friedrich Froebel, 19th century German philosopher and creator of ‘kindergarten’. Using interconnected toy-like objects and game boards D’Agostino mirrors Froebel’s use of self-guided play, story-telling, and building blocks to stimulate individual imagination and open sensory awareness to a deepening knowledge of the world and the interrelationships of things.
In No More Stories, David D'Agostino and collaborating artists Kelly Brewer, Noah Philips, and Mango Katz, use hand built wood constructions, natural ephemera, ceramic forms, paintings, drawings, and video to unfold the layers and complexities of species decline and habitat encroachment in the Rio Grande Valley.
D’Agostino finds that the intimacy of Albuquerque’s Open Space lands evokes a sense of public familiarity for honest engagement about species health and long term vitality. ‘No More Stories’ invites us to see nature in ways we might not have considered before - not only highlighting nature’s great beauty, but also its malformations, stress and shadows. SEE poster below for address and times.
'The mission of the Open Space Gallery is to inspire an exchange of ideas, solutions and interpretations as they relate to open space lands so as to deepen and enhance visitor understanding, appreciation and stewardship for Albuquerque’s unique natural and human community'. --City Of Albuquerque
