NowSpace is pleased to present acclaimed artist, Rachel Sussman as visiting artist-in-residence. As part of her residency, Rachel is working on a new project entitled Sidewalk Kintsukuroi, which expands on the traditional Japanese art of Kintsukuroi (“to repair with gold;” performed on ceramics) taking it, literally, out into the streets. At the heart of the idea of such “golden repair” is that something is made more beautiful for having been broken.
Rachel will be making her first site-specific museum installation of this work at MASS MoCA in April, as part of the exhibition The Space Between, where she will "repair" the cracks in the museum's courtyard. While visiting Now Space, Rachel is making stand-alone studies, as well as trying out different materials and techniques.
