For her highly personal installation, Annie Varnot filled Sunroom Project Space with enigmatic white sculptures. The result is a serene space for contemplating life’s impermanence, as well as the potential for growth and renewal. To create this installation, Varnot collected unsellable eggs from a poultry farmer in Nova Scotia during an artist residency. She then washed and hollowed the dirty or irregularly shaped eggs and set them in plaster, making ambiguous forms with odd protrusions that are mysterious yet seem strangely familiar. Accompanying videos elucidate the visceral experience of manipulating the eggs. Annie Varnot’s work will be on display in the Sunroom through Sunday, July 1.
Free with admission to grounds.
