Harmony in 3
, the new exhibition in Laumeier Sculpture Park's 2015 Kranzberg Exhibition Series, mows down preconceptions about dance, sculpture and groundskeeping. Video artist Zlatko Cosic and choreographer Ashley McQueen pay homage to the labor-intensive work that keeps Laumeier's 105 acres perfectly landscaped, while simultaneously celebrating the institution's extraordinary partnership with the St. Louis County Parks Department. The exhibition synthesizes a series of 2014 dance performances designed by McQueen in a short film by Cosic. Their collaboration features dancers Alexa Moor, Sarah Starkweather and Ellen Vierse as the ultimate mobile sculpture, their movements inspired by the precision choreography of the lawnmowers piloted by Don Gerling, Yvette Luedde and Tom Schweiss as they detail the park every week. Harmony in 3
opens in the brand-new Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, October 15, at Laumeier Sculpture Park (12580 Rott Road, Sunset Hills; 314-615-5278 or www.laumeiersculpturepark.org
). The work remains on display through Sunday, February 14, 2016, and the gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free.
