“Decomposing Hierarchies” Curated by Sarah Walko, Director of Arts Programming, Marble House Project
“Decomposing Hierarchies” is a publicly-presented video art exhibition on the Manhattan Bridge anchorage that explores various approaches to striping systemic hierarchies. The descriptive “decomposing” is chosen as each of the artists is pulling us through a transformation. Whether between living species, value systems or race, all of these artists are examining our relationship with historically and culturally constructed pecking orders that are in a state of decay and are far past serving us as a culture.
All of the artists in this exhibition were residents of Marble House Project in 2015, a non-profit arts organization that focuses on the arts and sustainable agriculture. Marble House Project nurtures the imaginative spirit. Through artist residencies, workshops and sustainable agriculture, Marble House Project promotes an innovative atmosphere and exchange of ideas. Inspiration, contemplation and creativity are the hallmarks of the program. The project focuses on conservation of natural resources, integration of small-scale organic food production and the arts. Residents sustain their growth by cultivating and participating in the surrounding grounds, working on their artistic vision and forging partnerships within the community. Marble House Project is founded on the belief that the act of creating, whether through art or in nature is where human potential begins and community thrives. Marble House Project is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2013 and is located in Dorset, Vermont.
