Colonization of Community
These four sculptures include a community-based sound art composition in which neighborhood residents were interviewed and recorded regarding their hopes, dreams, and celebratory stories of the King Park Area in Indianapolis, IN. The sculptures are approximately 8′ tall and fabricated out of fiberglass with an internal steel frame and were created by artists Quincy Owens and Luke Crawley.
These sculptures are a selection from the original Colonization of Commonality that made its debut at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, MI in 2013. “Colonization of Commonality” speaks to how humans form social identities and belief systems based on the interpretation of larger ideals and shared experiences within a larger societal definition.
