Opening of Brent Green: Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then


Artist and filmmaker Brent Green returns to DiverseWorks with his latest work, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, a whimsical installation of video, sculpture and sound featuring an opening night performance by Green and his collaborator, musician Donna K. For this film, Green was inspired by the true story of an idiosyncratic home in Louisville owned by hardware store clerk Leonard Wood. When Wood's wife Mary was diagnosed with cancer, he began building the house, affixing one room at a time, in the futile hope that his labor would save his beloved wife. Even after Mary's death, Wood continued to realize the house's design over the following 20 years in his wish to create something as tangible and powerful as his love for his wife.

The exhibition is on view through Dec. 18.
