Artist Jennifer Rubell creates participatory artwork that is a hybrid of performance art, installation and happenings. The SCAD Museum of Art has commissioned a site-specific installation that draws on these elements and uses a visual language drawn equally from the worlds of religion and art. "Free" is inspired by Rubell’s recent visit to Savannah as well as a broad range of ideas from communion and the Annunciation to Le Corbusier’s church at Ronchamp, artists Mark Rothko and Donald Judd, and Hans Namuth’s film of Jackson Pollock painting. By situating a delectable and poetic presentation of local Savannah honey and homemade biscuits within a specially designed sculpture into which visitors enter, Rubell surrounds visitors in a moment of divine presence.
"Free" is supported in part by a generous donation from the Savannah Bee Company.
