Getting It Right
Perhaps most adored is “Funky Bones” by the Dutch group Atelier Van Lieshout. The plywood and fiberglass piece is a natural for kid’s play. At the other end of the spectrum is the suspended aluminum rings of “Team Building (Align)” by Type A. The sleek forms hover like a spacecraft in an opening of the woods. Finnish artist Tea Makipaa’s “Eden II” is a mixed media extravaganza with live and taped video drama, plus a floating ghost ship.
I was passing through Indianapolis recently and was glad I could make a quick stop at 100 Acres. Go see it anytime but I think it’s best enjoyed on days when there are lots of people around. This is art that wants YOU.
