Into the Ground Letterpress Print

25.00

A letterpress print by collaborators Joe Riley and Audrey Snyder. The edition of 150 is printed on recycled cover-weight paper stock, 12.5 x 18”. All proceeds from the sale of these prints go toward supporting Joe and Audrey’s upcoming project for the 2018-19 Socrates Annual Exhibition, opening October 2018 at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, Queens.

Their project, Into the ground: wastestreams & fieldwork, excavates ecological histories, land-use, decay, and disposal at Socrates Sculpture Park for the 2018-19 Socrates Annual. The work reflects on the processes through which plants uptake and transform contaminants via root systems, and collective bodies realize agency through ground-up organizing. The project forms around the likeness of a covered car, to be dyed with a solution of discarded, oxidized materials during a series of workshops and ceremonies. These assemblies call on visibility and invisibility of discarded objecthood: is it an abandoned vehicle or a public monument? A rusted relic or a deliberate composition? A landfill or a park?
