Gallery Talk for “FLOE: A Climate of Risk | The Fictional Archaeology of Stephen Talasnik” with Stephen Talasnik
Join the Museum for Art in Wood for an in-depth conversation with world-renowned sculpture and installation artist Stephen Talasnik on his latest exhibition, FLOE: A Climate of Risk | The Fictional Archaeology of Stephen Talasnik. Talasnik, who grew up and was educated in Philadelphia, poses his hometown for his “fictional archaeology” of a natural disaster brought on by climate change; the evidence is revealed in the collection of unearthed artifacts presented in the exhibition. FLOE features an imaginative and mesmerizing installation by Talasnik illustrated in wood, bamboo, and composite materials. The exhibition also includes works from the Museum’s permanent collection, curated by Talasnik and selected to represent the remnants of a lost world.
