“Our Memories” at Colonels Row, Building 406, PorchB

Our Memories©, Judith Modrak’s first outdoor sculptural installation, is composed of three translucent sculptures cast in fiberglass resin. The sculptures will involve the audience in unexpected ways as viewers recall a powerful memory, then share the memory by placing a color-coded bibelot inside the sculpture. As the sculpture ages, it will take on the colors of the memories, transforming into a collective memorial piece.

About the 9th Annual Governors Island Art Fair:
Indulge your curiosity – explore the abandoned military barracks of Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF), 100 singular rooms of painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, and sound art.

Run by artists, for artists, New York’s largest independent exhibition enters its 9th year this fall. Once again GIAF organizers, 4heads, sifted through a sea of creative proposals from New York and around the world, giving 100 of the best a full room each, in which to wreak havoc as they see fit. And outside on the grass: large-scale sculpture, food, drink, music and more.

Governors Island Art Fair is organized by 4heads, a New York City nonprofit organization created by artists for artists. Their goals are to foster community by offering space for artists, to provide arts-education for the underserved, and to expose hidden culture. 4heads supports a collaborative DIY spirit while catalyzing dialogue between artists and people from all walks of life.
