MEMORY is the artist’s 9th and final solo biennial of interactive installation in Maine’s abandoned mill spaces. In 1998, she began what would be an 18-year commitment to interactive installation art, 9 solo-biennial exhibits from 2000 to 2016. In the end, she will have installed 81 large-in-scope, temporary, participatory works in the vast mill spaces of 8 or 9 Maine towns. Each biennial is 22 months of intense rigor, each exhibit exploring a different theme while inviting audience to perpetuate its 9 unique installations. This 18-year work is her opus.
