Sculpture Center Features Project by LMCC Resident Peter Simensky

LMCC Workspace Resident Peter Simensky is currently included in Sculpture Center's annual In Practice exhibition. Selected artists are chosen each year through an open call for project proposals.

Peter's installation places divination rods within the lower level gallery space. The forms of these rods are based on the artist's research into the use of divining mediums. Peter will uses this knowledge to trace the space of SculptureCenter's basement, searching for objects of value hidden below the floor. Simensky's piece explores how artistic gestures create potential value, and how these sets of relations might find a form of translation within objects that combine the functional, the decorative, and the symbolic.
