BODY WORK & Willow in Motion at Susan Hensel Gallery by Martha Bird Susan Hensel Gallery is proud to present Minneapolis, multidisciplinary artist Martha Bird’s new show Willow in Motion in the Windows on Cedar Project and Body Work on artsy.net. Running from November 15th, 2021 to January 15th, 2022, Body Work exhibits Bird’s intricately created natural fiber works. Using willow the artist raises and/or harvests herself according to sustainable practices, Bird creates captivating pieces that talk about the complex struggles and triumphs of the body. These works include her well known spiral forms that mimic the organic geometry of everything from the smallest creatures to the largest galaxies. The exhibit also contains sculptural objects that examine personal experiences of trauma and injury in diverse ways. The largest number of works are in the Artsy show. A few are in the windows. Driveby, take bus#23 and see if you can figure out which pieces are here IN REAL LIFE! […]
