Surviving Sandy, Artist Interviews

Artist Frances Cape spoke with Willis Arnold about his work featured at the exhibition Come Together: Surviving Sandy. Cape has a strong attention to craft and solid wood sculpture constructions. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Art Forum, Art in America, and the Brooklyn Rail. Cape's piece for Come Together: Surviving Sandy, is an installation of photographs taken during his time volunteering in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The installation creates a dialogue between these two natural disasters and their affects on different communities. Cape also discussed his recently exhibited work, Utopian Benches, and the turn away from producing hermetic art, toward socially and politically charged work, a turn that unites both his work at Come Together: Surviving Sandy, and Utopian Benches.

Finley explained the transition from collecting massive quantities of costume jewelry, using that jewelry construct mandalas during live performances, and having that mandala frozen within resin.
