Five artists from the Axiom Group spent five days wilderness camping on Bumpkin Island in Boston Harbor as part of the Bumpkin Island Art Encampment Residency, where they collaboratively worked on individual cross-disciplinary projects. The product of extreme limitations – artists could bring only the materials which they could carry, including five days of camping supplies, food and water – the works ranged from performance to installation to solar sculpture. Works include a border control/processing station for alien invaders to the island, the absurd use of solar power, an installation made of 75 rolls of film shot on the island, text installations integrated into the landscape, and the unsuccessful construction of a winged costume made of burnt campfire wood.
Featuring work by Meghann Hickson, Heidi Kayser, Georgina Lewis, Alex Reben, Sarah Rushford, and Evan Smith. A limited edition print by Evan Smith will also be given away as part of his piece.
Axiom also says BON VOYAGE to three of our artist members as they go to graduate school and a teaching appointment: a huge thanks and good luck to Nick Marmor, Meghann Hickson and Wayne Madsen! Come celebrate with us at the opening for You Are My Sunshine.
