If you’re looking for something to do for a summer weekend, Storm King Art Center officially opened two special exhibitions for the 2017 season, Heather Hart’s The Oracle of Lacuna and David Smith’s The White Sculptures.
Outlooks, in its fifth year, is an initiative in which one emerging artist is chosen to create a site-specific sculpture inspired by Storm Kings environment or history. The installations are temporary and last only one season. Heather Hart’s The Oracle of Lacuna is a constructed suburban rooftop that appears to be either emerging from the environment or sinking into it. The interactive sculpture was designed for the viewers to not only walk into the house, but to take a stroll on the roof.
Hart imagines the rooftop constantly being reinvigorated by music, movement, poetry, and other events. We were lucky enough to catch the Brooklyn-based duo known as Chargaux performing on the rooftop for opening day. The violin and viola playing duo met by chance a few years ago. They started their career the way many New York City musicians start: by playing in the city’s subway stations. The duo’s music and fashion senses quickly caught people’s attention and the duo now has two albums Broke and Baroque and Meditations of a G.
