Co-Lab Projects: 9/11 Memorial
Austin artist Claude van Lingen’s new installation at Co-Lab honors those who died on September 11, 2001, in the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Pennsylvania tragedies and pays homage to those who died in the ensuing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. This exhibition centers around two large drawings in which the names of the 2,753 victims of the World Trade Center were written one over the other, in Van Lingen’s signature style, causing the paper to shred and tear. Visitors will be asked to collaboratively create an artwork by writing the names of the victims killed in the 9/11 attacks on a large piece of paper, then sign and date their action on another; those signatures will be attached to the back of the artwork and framed.
Past date: Closing reception: Sat., Sept. 18, noon-6pm
