Object donation event for forest
(Silent Stories)

Sat, June 1, 2-4pm

Free to the public, Jane Street and Suprina will be inviting the public to bring an object they would normally throw away and donate it to the Silent Stories forest forever. The participants will be photographed with their object and asked to write about the object in a journal. Then Suprina, dressed in her plastic bag outfit, will escort the person and object into the forest. Suprina will pick a place to ‘plant’ the object. Once she and the participant are done, Suprina will ask the person to ‘say a few words about the object’ …..kinda like a memorial. This is how Suprina grows her forest for the next art installation. She states, “you’d be surprised at how people react to this ritual of sorts.”

‘They Speak to Me’
Performance Video Installed

Sat, June 1

Saugerties on-site performance video will be complete and installed at Jane St. Art Center

This is a site-specific piece that talks about our consumption. Suprina will be shooting May 1-8 with Rock Wilk, an incredible filmmaker also living in Poughkeepsie.

The storyline-
Suprina will start her travels at the Saugerties Library, then move to the 15 Minutes of Frame, the Lighthouse, Arm of the Sea, and possibly Opus 40 and other sites while wearing her plastic bag outfit. As she travels from one place to the next she comes upon different “objects”; that have been left behind, abandoned or castaway. These objects ’talk’ to her, they tell her their stories…. Who owned them, when they were purchased and why they were left behind. As each tells her their story, she picks them up and places them into her broken (also a discarded object) red wagon.

After visiting all these location’s, Suprina walks into her Silent Stories forest art installation at Jane Street Art Center to ‘plant’ her new found objects. This finished video will be on view at Jane St. Art Center from June 1 to June 22.
