Mystery Bird – Pina, Vienna Austria
Invited by Angelika Loderer
December 14, 2017 — January 14, 2018
In an effort to create a self-sustaining system, the budget for production was spent entirely on raw firewood. During his short term residency in Vienna, Layet Johnson chopped about a metric tonne of firewood on site. The firewood will be used to heat the stove in the bar room, allowing the gallerists to lower the space’s operating costs during the winter. There will be gatherings and poetry readings held during this time and firewood being sold to neighbours in a temporary garage-sale style wood shop.
With generous support by the Bundeskanzleramt Austria, the City of Vienna, the 4th municipal District of Vienna and the Central Connecticut State University 2017-2018 Faculty Development Grant Competition Award.
