Public project located at Putnam st, Grand ave and Fulton st, in collaboration with DOT Art, A.I.R Gallery and the Clinton Hill community

Exquisite Corpse is a public, interactive and participatory sculpture that focused on local neighborhood figures of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Each individual that I photographed was either born in the surrounding area or has been living there for more than 25 years. Larger-than-life-sized, black and white portraits of each subject were displayed on the four blocks of the rotating sculpture. With the participation of the audience, the interactive sculpture was frequently changed as each cube shifted and turned to create unique photomontage portraits. In addition, four new resident portraits were added to the sculpture every three months. I aimed to capture the energy of bodies in movement in a changing neighborhood. My intention was to emphasize local figures who are the soul of the neighborhood in order to create interactions and possible dialogue between newer residents of Clinton Hill.
