art in the everyday: eleven heavy things.

Miranda July (one of my idols) has a fun little park installation entitled “Eleven Heavy Things”, and ARTINFO has a lovely interview w/ the full scoop.

Gracious. Ms. July drinks serious creativity for breakfast…

“Even the stranger [sculpture] — it says, ‘We’re just hugging for the picture. When we’re done I’ll walk away quickly.’ It’s trying to get strangers to hug each other but also acknowledging that it’s just a setup, maybe totally uncomfortable. And then the rest are like: guilt, lying, some sort of broken-woman feminism … And then these abstract ones. I feel like they come across, at a glance as really sweet, but if you really look, there’s nothing in there that’s just sweet.”
