“The large piece at the center of the show is a self-portrait of sorts. Three legs of ”my” body are anchored by sarcophagi, or miniature versions of houses that I have built or renovated. Each house holds raw cotton. The forth leg, a Maypole, is made of silk, a material comparatively less toxic in its production. Though contaminated by the problematic history of American indigo, the baby sheep rises as a moment of hope for the next generation.”-Sarah Wagner. “Whether Ewe Like It or Not” is on view @kossartgallery through August 31.

“The concept for “Whether Ewe Like It or Not” drives from the European myth of the “vegetable lamb”. Cotton, woolly yet breathable, like linen, was so exotic to Europe that people couldn’t conceptualize it. They invented a complex artificial reality in which cotton grew, like wool, on sheep that grew in trees.”- Sarah Wagner. The show is on view @kossartgallery through August. We are open Friday 11-5:30pm and Saturday 11-4pm or by appointment. Come over to check it out ✨ #sarahwagner #contemporaryart #artdetroitnow #detroitartist #easternmarket #detroitgallery #artinstallation #impact of #industrialization #slavery #polution #sheeptrees

Sarah Wagner: Whether Ewe Like It or Not on view @kossartgallery through August. “This installation is inspired by the fanciful myth that sheep grew on trees, which began in the 16th century and lingered until it was debunked in the late 19th century. The sheep trees can be viewed to represent the ways Americans create myths to explain the foundation of our country. All our body politic is weakened by ignoring the true history of how the nation began, namely through slavery. Today, new visions of “sheep trees”-in the form of “alternative facts”-seem to exist almost everywhere...” -Sarah Wagner #sarahwagner #contemporaryart #artinstallation #detroitartist #detroitgallery #artdetroitnow #easternmarket #kossartgallery

“For Artists, the thrill of grant money arrives with a ‘Now what’? “
an article by Ted Loos @nytimes
March 13, 2018
“Once the grant is obtained, what comes next? Should the artists fund a current art project or pay down debt? Should they rent a studio or buy one? Should they sit on a beach and think of great ideas or get health insurance?...”

“My work historically shows a balance of movement versus stasis, usually gestures anchored by simple geometry. Here, color plays a bigger part in the movement. Using tools from our fast-paced culture as a means of respite from that culture I’ve created this series of works; positive, happy and playful; seemingly simple”-Mary Gillis.

Would You Dance In The Fire?

Imagine that you are woken up by some noise.
You hear the sound of flame, you can feel the burning heat, but the light is so bright that you cannot see clearly. The pulse is kicking in veins... Everything is so unfamiliar and you are scared. You need to react quickly. What would you do?

Imagine that you can choose.

It’s been a year since we moved to Detroit.

This place is where I feel safe and motivated to listen, feel, learn… to hear my voice and collaborate with the others, to help creating even better days.
