A tulip sprouts forth from soil; thus, we look downwards. Here we find decomposition at the source of composition, returning with each passing season. Sprung from spores and seeds, the basis of life is the loss of one former. Reflecting the overturn of bodies, matter and time, fertile ground provides the opportunity for both loss and gain.
"Fertile Ground" is the third iteration of the performance and ephemeral art series presented by BFA Visual & Critical Studies. Through various assessments of materiality, each work presented will discuss its own state of decay. This series features performances, micro-installations and other impermanent, non-traditional experiments within the space, curated by current students in the program Stella Song, Ryan Miller and Gabriel Humphrey.
