open | close | open is designed as an interactive piece, a game, a meditation for two. The artist, Milcah Bassel, invites you to come play on August 4 (6:30 - 8:30 pm), September 15 (6-8pm), and October 1 (2-6pm). Bassel’s 79 small square ceramic vessels constitute game pieces in a moveable grid, representing organs in the human body. The title is lifted from a poem by Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai, that reflects on states of being open/closed/open during pre-birth/life/death.
Please be advised that open | close | open is only available to be touched when artist is present.
