From Sweet Pass Sculpture Park:
“A site-responsive, outdoor installation pairing custom benches with sculptures, sounds, and text to create a meandering path within the landscape of Sweet Pass Sculpture Park. Craving touch and intimacy, Desire Paths attends to the tactile and topographical body of the landscape. Lengths of brightly colored ropes weave through the park, tracing a simple line drawing across lush green fauna and inviting visitors to mirror, or playfully subvert, its direction. Planted along this route are an edition of six custom benches, acting as islands, nodes, or way stations— individual stars within a larger constellation. Each bench facilitates a sculpture made by the individual members of MATERIAL GIRLS in response to the broader theme. In proximity to each bench, visitors will find a small mirror engraved with an enigmatic symbol. These plaques tie the artworks to words and images found in a correlating zine, co-authored by the collective. Material Girls are a non-hierachical, feminist collective from NY, Austin, and LA.”
